US-based Ghanaian actor Abraham Attah has been featured in a new Hollywood movie, “Tazmanian Devil”.
The soon-to-be released movie captures the story of a Nigerian man who experiences culture shock when he comes to the U.S. to attend college.
“Tazmanian Devil” will be released on Feb. 9, when it will be available to purchase or rent.
In the film, the protagonist Dayo (Attah) fights to define himself within the context of social, familial and religious influences.
As he struggles to adjust to life as a college freshman, he gets to know his previously estranged father (played by Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine), a devout Christian pastor with strict rules and very high expectations for his son.
Dayo quickly finds himself at odds with his father simply because he wants to live the life of a typical American college student.
Their conflicts escalate when Dayo decides to pledge Tau Alpha Zeta, a fraternity whose members are ironically known on campus as “The Devils.”
