Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
The dictator of a Third-World African country endeavors to bring his people into the 20th century in this drama based on a play by one of Africa's premier writers. The dictator came to power after deposing the king. His greatest challenge will be in uniting his nation which is largely comprised of different tribes. The dictator uses every means possible, not all of them honest, to attain his goal. He even seeks advice from the dethroned king. He also tries to keep his country's cultural roots intact by forcing his officials to wear traditional African clothing.
