7.5/10

Mildred played by Mona Lisa Chinda has been in Nigeria for 9 months following the death of her husband. She has been following the traditions as expected by her husband’s family but the traditions are never ending and she needs to return back to her life in London. She needs to go back to work and her children need to resume their studies. Her husband’s family refuse to let her return and hide the all the family members passports. She is called a witch and told to confess to killing her husband. Her life changes when she opens her door to a stranger who followed her home from church. Who is he and what does he want?

Uru Eke is back. You don't know how happy I was when her name flashed up in the credits at the beginning. I always remember her outstanding performance in Widow's Men and since then I haven't seen her in anything worthy so here's hoping an Emem Isong vehicle is what she needs. I enjoyed her performance; she played a bratty teenager with ease. I don't usually like British accents in Naija movies but for Uru I make an exception.


I would recommend the movie. It was moved at a steady paced, was well shot and well acted. I liked the subject matter because widowhood is an important subject matter that effect many women negatively. Traditions such as those highlighted in the movie that oppress women need to be talked about and changed so I give the movie kudos for tackling the subjects that it did Thumbs up.

Okay movie...Christian Themed Nolly flick- if you're into that genre you'll probably like this...good acting from the principal cast.....very poor sound quality(took away from the movie)...why do so many Naija movies have bad sound? Over the years they have improved on the picture quality but the sound in most Nolly movies are bad..Shirley Frimpong Manso and Frank Rajah's films do not seem to have bad sound like most nolly flicks. Maybe some of our Naija producers need to take workshops from some of their Ghanian counterparts...I'm just saying...

Takes 90% of the fun from watching nolly flicks, doesn't it? I can't forgive a movie with bad sound quality. I stop watching them the first instance i perceive the bad sound quality. One of the major reasons i stopped watching nolly flicks. I have become very sensitive to bad sound quality and i can no longer tolerate it like i used to.
