The Contract is a romantic comedy starring Joseph Benjamin, Yvonne Okoro and Hlomla Dandala.
It tells a story of a successful businessman, Peter Puplampo, the ultimate alpha male. He is 40 year-old, rich and a staunch bachelor. Despite his mother’s persistent attempts to find him a woman, Peter sticks to his rule of non-committal casual dates, freedom and being in control of his life until the desire to have a child arises.
In his quest to find the woman who will take his money, have his child and disappear, Peter begins a roller-coaster, contractual relationship with Abena Boateng, a crude but cleverly local girl who is anything but impressed with Peter’s affluence.
With a clear definitive contract from his lawyer outlining the dos and don’ts of bearing Peter Puplampo’s child, these two opposites must exercise every bit of willpower not to kill each other until the child is born. The movie is an unsuspecting romantic comedy with unusual twists that expose the flaws in being in control of one’s life.
