Kweku tries to get out of helping out on the family farm by pretending to be sick. His brothers, Kwesi and Kwame, dutifully accompany their father to the farm everyday to clear the land and plant the seeds. Kweku goes out to play with his friends while the rest of the family is busy tending to the farm. After the harvest, Kwesi and Kwame get their rewards in the form of brand new bicycles while Kweku gets nothing. This is painful for Kweku. The following year Kweku is the first person to get up in the morning ready to go to the farm.
