Storyline

Running a company can be challenging, especially if you are a female in a male-dominated industry. Looking to prove her worth, Adaeze steps up to the challenge when her father, Chief Ernest Obiagu is forced to take a step back due to health issues. Ironically, he appoints his crude and eccentric brother, Godswill, instead to run the company with his young daughter. Complications arise when they discover that the family business is in dire financial straits and both Adaeze and Godswill try to save the company in their own way to crazy and often hilarious results.

For a first time director and two times producer of films ,nnaji is heading for greatness. Beautiful film to say the least . And a very calming movie with smiles 😀. A drama movie without drama! She can only get better from here. You have my 10/10
