A cleverly woven tale of betrayal, incest and revenge!
Lola, played by Omoni Oboli is a free spirit who is fed up of her parents constantly comparing her to her late sister Kemi. There is great fiction in their household because of this. Ngozi, played by Stella Damasus is a student who is struggling to support her mother and younger siblings. Her friend persuades her into joining her in town doing runs. She also embarks on a mission to exert revenge on the person that plunged her previously wealthy household into poverty. A teenage girl played by Sylvia Oluchi is being sexually abused by her uncle, and we see the repercussions of this.
It has been a while since I saw Mr. and Mrs. Jacobs acting alongside each other, and it was wonderful to watch. The same goes for Stella Damasus. Stella is brilliant. I actually forgot how good she was. She was wholly believable in her role. Omoni Oboli too was great. She has come along was from movies like Behind A Smile. It is so great that she is now selective in choosing her roles. It really does make a different. Mercy Johnson take note. This is my first time seeing Sylvia Oluchi in a movie. I gotta give it to her. It was a stellar performance. I actually felt emotional myself when she discovered that she was pregnant for the second time. I Hope to see her again.
I would recommend this movie. I loved the way that all the stories in the movie tied into each other so cleverly. It was an all star cast and a performance driven movie that kept you gripped, however the way that it descended into some born again Christian propaganda video was off putting to me. Others of you may love that. Even though the ending let it down for me but still give it the thumbs up.
