Synopsis

After 40 years of building a home in London, Agnes is retiring and moving back to Ghana. Her final wish is for her sons to live together under the same roof when she is gone. But her eldest, Sol, is living with a girlfriend Agnes loathes and he won't move home until Agnes accepts her. Whilst younger brother Caleb will do whatever it takes to inherit the house - except share it with Sol. As her departure draws closer, tensions at Agnes' rise to breaking point. Will she trust her 21st century boys and finally allow them to be men? Who will own the House of Agnes?
