    Starring Majid Michel, Yvonne Okoro, John Dumelo

    There are seven pragmatic definitions of life that would definitely get you thinking. But the most incisive of them all however, is the thought that life is a game...... A game in which the first move is not always the best move.

    Ella Boateng is married to real estate millionaire Andy Nadab. But when Andy who supposedly is seeing another woman pops up in her face asking for a divorce, she decides that she must first know the woman who has stolen his heart. In that light and with the help of her half Sister Zina, she secures the services of Jason, a young Man good at such odd jobs as trailing people and commissions him to at all cost find out who the "other woman" is. But unknown to her however and even to the best of minds, the other womanis Zina.What follows is a dare-devil web of plots and counter-plots between both sisters that leave a trail of hate, bitterness, pain and anguish.

    At the end of it all however we are taught another very important definition of life.....Life is not a bed of Roses..

    First let me start with the good, the image and sound quality was good, yvonne Okoro's acting was good too(acting wise, I'll rate her up there with the likes of Mercy Johnson), and I liked that the movie was only a two parter(4 part movies kill me...desperately looking forward to when Nolly & Gholly start making one part movies)
    Okay now the bad, the story wasn't well planned, not one likable character in the whole movie...everyone was backstabbing everyone to a point where nothing made sense..the woman in the bush reading to a blind man:confused::confused::confused::confused:
    I'll Rate this a 6/10

    On a contrary the story is a well written story. The suspense is intense! What actually makes this movie a great movie is the fact that the blind man knows everything about all characters. "Definition #9: you can't know everything" is just a perfect way to end the movie. As for the backstabbing, this movie reminds me of The Departed with Leonardo Di Caprio, J. Nicholson, Mark Walhberg etc. Bravo! Man, the director has won my heart! See finishing! Kai!
