About the Film

Emeka and Jumoke, married for 11 years, have a 10-year-old daughter whom they love dearly. They have been trying hard to have another child and hope it will be a boy to appease Emeka’s family's desire for a male child. One night a gang attacks them and the gang leader makes Emeka decide who will get raped, his wife or his daughter. This puts a huge strain on their relationship as their worlds start to fall apart afterwards.
