SYNOPSIS (Courtesy of Ocilloscope Laboratories)

Adenike and Ayodele (The Walking Dead‘s 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.
