Directed by Andrew Dosunmu | 2013

With Danai Gurira, Isaach De Bankole, Yaya Alafia, Tony Okungbowa, Bukky Ajayi, Angelique Kidjo

"Stark, poetic power... extraordinary visual and sonic acumen..."
—Variety

In a flurry of dazzling colors, textiles, music, and dance, Brooklyn restaurant owner Ayodele and his bride Adenike (The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira) are married and ceremoniously blessed with traditional Nigerian prayers of fertility. Adenike struggles to conceive a child, and with mounting pressure from her oppressive mother-in-law, she must take drastic measures to save her marriage. With sumptuous, spellbinding cinematography from DP Bradford Young (Pariah, Middle of Nowhere), Andrew Dosunmu’s (Restless City) exquisite sophomore feature is an enlightening look at immigrant life, capturing the vibrant culture of Crown Heights’ Yoruba community.
