This is the story of a loser, a stripper, a drug lord and a spider. Its urban crime noir, its a fairy tale, its mythology. Its also the story of a mother who went through a lot in life, a woman who gained and lost, hated and loved, but never once gave up on life. Deep inside, she was golden, and her inner strength ultimately set her free. No matter what bonds hold a person back, be it a bad marriage, prison, a small town or a gang-infested city, theres away a way. The story of Anansi is an African folk tale, told by people who songs and stories carried the spirits of men and women throughout the centuries, though good times and bad.
