Summary, etc.:
Kukurantumi : the road to Accra. In this revealing African comedy-drama that contrasts the hectic life in Accra, the capital of Ghana, with the relative peace of Kukurantumi, a rural town, a truck driver makes runs between the two locations with few problems until he is forced to replace his truck. In order to raise the money to get a new vehicle, he sells some stolen watches and promises his daughter in marriage to a rich merchant. Rebelling against this fate, the daughter runs off to Accra with her boyfriend -- but then nothing turns out quite like she had planned, and the rich merchant looks better with each passing day.
No time to die. Asante loves his job as a hearse driver. He brings the dead from the Ghanaian capital Accra to their villages where the funeral ceremonies take place. But what woman wants to be with a hearse driver? Until Asante wins a beautiful dancer's heart. Her father doesn't want his daughter to marry a hearse driver, but Asante doesn't give up, even resorting to a few supernatural tricks.
No time to die. A hearse driver falls in love with a young, beautiful dancer who is planning an elaborate homecoming celebration for her mother. The hearse driver does everything he can to win her affection despite steep opposition from the woman's father.
