Summary
Kwaku Ananse is a traditional West African fable of a spiderman, who spends years collecting all wisdom of the world in a wooden calabash. As he tries to hide the pot in a tree he can't find a way to place it high up in its branches. When his little son, Ntikuma shows him the way, Kwaku Ananse becomes so angered and throws the pot down onto the ground. It bursts and the wisdom seeps away. Everyone rushes over, hoping to salvage what they can. Nyan Koronhwea returns to her father Kwaku Ananse's native Ghana for his funeral. They had long lost contact with each other.
