Plot Summary

A Man’s Story profiles menswear designer Ozwald Boateng, his business and his personal life. Charismatic, glamorous, hard-working and very humanly flawed, Boateng’s triumphs and set-backs are the meat of this film which is set against a back-drop of models, movie stars and exotic locations. Black and straight, he breaks the stereotypes of the fashion industry. He is his own original.
