Paa Joe & The Lion, directed by Benjamin Wigley

Paa Joe dreams of returning to his glory days as a successful and acclaimed artist in Ghana’s fantasy coffin trade.

There are no customers, no tourists — there are no coffins to make. His son, Jacob, dreams too, he dreams of returning his father to his glory days and rebuilding the family legacy together.

It is the start of their future together — master and son… Paa Joe & The Lion
