Storyline

Unprecedented in scope, "Ijé" tells a tale of Chioma, a child growing up in the Nigerian countryside, who warns her restless sister Anya about the trappings of the American dream. Ten years later, Anya is accused of killing three men in a Hollywood Hills mansion--including her record-producer husband. Chioma travels from Nigeria to Los Angeles and, with the help of a young, unproven attorney, discovers that the dark secret her sister wants to keep hidden might be the only thing that can win her freedom. Written by Prisca Anuolam
