Jarreth Merz, an actor of Swiss-Nigerian extraction living in Los Angeles, finds himself grappling with his heritage when he discovers that his father has died. According to Nigerian tradition, the first-born is in charge of his father’s burial. But who is this father? And why does Jarreth feel morally bound towards a family he hardly knows and who has never really been particularly interested in him? Thus starts a journey of discovery into Jarreth’s origins.
