Synopsis by Maggie Sadler

In the slums of Lagos, Rosa (Temiloluwa Ami-Williams) and Mofe (Jude Akuwudike) strive to better the lives of their struggling families, hoping to secure visas and seek new opportunities abroad. Yet both Mofe and Rosa's aspirations begin to crumble as a tragic circumstance claims each member of Mofe's family and Rosa fails to uphold her end of a critical bargain. As Rosa and Mofe contend with their guilt, they reconsider what opportunities may exist in Nigeria, looking to rebuild and strive for a fresh start without turning their backs on their home. Co-directed by Arie Esiri and Chuko Esiri.
