When men turn away from her door because of her young son, she is forced to run away to the city, abandoning her baby son, Kwaw.In a society where families are the central purpose of life, all Adjo wants is a husband to take care of her- and all her husband will want is a baby to continue the family name.

Adjo, a prostitute, abandons her bastard child in the bush to maintain her street customers who were deserting her.

Auntie Mansa finds the abandoned child, names him Kwaw, and takes him home. She nourishes and nurtures him until Kwaw, provoked by his peers who tease him about being a bastard, runs away from the village to search for his father.

Meanwhile, Adjo succeeds in marrying one of her secret customers, Mr. Antwi, a businessman. After fruitless efforts to bear him a child, Mr. Antwi threatens to divorce her. Adjo tries to secure her position in the home by seeking the help of a herbalist, which eventually leads to Mr. Antwi’s death.

Adjo inherits Mr. Antwi’s estate yet she is not happy because even though she lacks nothing in terms of money, she wants a child.

On one of her routine business trips she sights Kwaw in tattered clothes, struggling to earn his daily bread. Out of sympathy and love, Adjo invites the young man to stay with her. Their relationship eventually leads to love. They plan to marry but the marriage never comes off because they have blood relations. The money spent on the wedding ceremony goes to waste, and disgrace stares at Adjo in the face.
