At the altar with his lady-love and bride-to-be, a man falters in affixing the marriage ring on the finger of his bride-to-be in the presence of the officiating minister and guests. We are then taken to a bachelor party of the male. After a drinking spree, males in session for the party wake in a truck headed for the Banjuri rural dwelling away from the city clad only in their pants. It turns out one member of the crew had a mixture he laced their drinks with for a potent feel.
A disjointed groom team find themselves in the king’s court treated to good food and pretty damsels however a human sacrifice is in the offing and soon the straying crew is in a run for their lives pursued by warriors of the settlement.
The lady, husband-to-be Orlando would have married is wealthy but arrogant and when he finds himself in the Banjuri village beholding the princess of the king, he starts to evaluate things. The truck the boys find themselves in makes a return to the city after three days so there’s little choice but to wait and embark when he readies for Accra which happens to be day of the wedding.
Would Orlando make it on time to tie the nuptial knot or would he arrive at the venue but ask his lady-love to move on as he has fallen in love with the Banjuri princess?
