Summary Set in present day Ghana, Nakom follows Iddrisu, a talented medical student who is summoned home by his sister after their father’s sudden death. Iddrisu reluctantly returns home to the village of Nakom, buries his father and temporarily assumes the head of the impoverished household and farm, inheriting not only the delicate task of planting a successful crop but also a debt left by the deceased patriarch that could destroy the family. Nominated for the John Cassavetes Award at the **Film Independent Spirit Awards**. Nominated for Best First Feature Film at the **Berlin International Film Festival.** *"A dramatic microcosm of the age-old conflict between progress and tradition." - Dennis Harvey, **Variety***
