“Once upon a time in Ghana, Paa Joe’s business – bespoke “fantasy coffins,” meticulously crafted simulacra of mythic beasts – was booming, but that time appears long past. His son Jacob seeks to return the family business to its former glory, a plan that begins with an artist residency in the UK where they will craft their biggest and boldest coffin yet: a majestic lion. Paa Joe & The Lion is the heartwarming fish-out-of-water story about a father and son embracing life through art that celebrates death.”
