Having had my first cousin with whom I was very close to die of complications due to Sickle Cell and having seen her in pain due to crisis and having seen her on some serious medications like Vicodin which had her almost nodding out in mid conversation, I did not believe for one nanosecond that the main character was on the last steps to Heaven.

I have always like Tchidi Chikere, he wrote the screenplay even though Genevieve and he plotted the story line but he fell off on this one, maybe because he was wearing a lot of hats, i.e actor, screen writer, director, producer, theme composer....but he's managed it well in some of my favorite films of his so I don't know what happened here.

I will not review this film because there is nothing good I would have to say about it but for this one area that is NOT subjective because you can find information online, I will just say because I have had personal experience with SA, none of depiction of the health issue in the story was convincing at all. I saw my cousin when she drew her last breath and she didn't look freshly made up, hair done and freshly painted nail tip stuck on her fingers.

I kind'a tho't so as well. I know that looking good is the last thing on your mind when you're going through that kind'a crisis and are aware that you won't be around for very long. The pain doesn't allow for such liberties. But I did enjoy the movie and Okon provided comedy in the midst of sadness. Tchidi, like pecs noted was bearable this time, but had me paying more attention to his made up accent. Madam Comfort's daughter constantly did my head in with the way she spoke(bless her). The servants almost had me in tears.
