Directed by Joanna Lipper | 2014

This gripping documentary traces the evolution of the pro-democracy movement in Nigeria and the efforts made to increase the participation of women in leadership roles. Following the annulment of her father's victory in the presidential election and her mother's assassination by agents of the military dictatorship, Hafsat Abiola faces the challenge of transforming a corrupt culture of governance into a democracy capable of serving Nigeria's most marginalized population: women. Joanna Lipper’s “lean, lucid film” (The Village Voice) scopes from one family’s struggles to those faced by a whole nation.
