In Ghana, West Africa, a rural village eagerly awaits a shipment of recycled bicycles from the United States. The majority of the bikes are sold in a colorful frenzy to pay for shipping costs, while the best bikes are set aside to take to the village. Ayamye* chronicles the lives of Nurse Letitia and Seth before they get the bicycles and again, one year later. These two individuals are very different from each other, the common thread being the need for transportation and the wish for positive development in their community. â€œAyamyeâ€ is a moving, life-affirming film that proves sustainable solutions to crisis are not always complex.
