Paa Joe has seen success. He was once the premiere fantasy coffin maker in Ghana, known to carve human size replicas of coke bottles, alligators, cows, cars, peppers, and birds. His work shipped worldwide and has been seen in museums and galleries. His trajectory is drastically changed when he has to move locations and he finds himself without work and needing to take a big risk to restart his artistic career.
