Great film!

Awesome movie! Really well done. Beautifully shot too. The colors rich and crisp and just pop right off the screen. The acting is great too and holds the whole thing together as these characters are pulled into this not-so-uncommon familial conflict of infertility. The film immerses you in the dynamics of this remote Nigerian enclave in Brooklyn, NY.

Mother of George

I loved this movie. It tells the ordinary story of a married couple who are having trouble conceiving a child. However, this couple are of traditional Nigerian heritage, and in their culture, this sort of a situation has extraordinary consequences. Preeeettty interesting.


Incredible acting and beautiful cinematography make this film well worth the watch. Enjoy!
