SYNOPSIS (Courtesy of Oscilloscope Laboratories)

Adenike and Ayodele (played by “The Black Panther” star Danai Gurira, and veteran actor Isaach De Bankolé) are a Nigerian couple living in Brooklyn.  

Following the joyous celebration of their wedding, complications arise out of their inability to conceive a child -­‐ a problem that devastates their family and defies cultural expectations, leading Adenike to make a shocking decision that could either save her family or destroy it.  

Acclaimed director Andrew Dosumnu (Restless City) captures the nuances of this unique and fascinating culture by creating a beautiful, vibrant, and moving portrait of a couple whose joys and struggles are at once intimate and universal.
