Starring: Frederick Leonard, Daniel K Daniel,Adaora Ukoh, Vivien Ike, Juliet Ibrahim, Ekanna Igwe, King Joe and Uche Iwuji.  Nigeria.  

Telling a slightly different twisted love story than the average Nigerian film. A wife starts to think that her husband (Leonard) is having an affair, after confiding in her best friend they start to do some sleuthing, they come to the initial conclusion that nothing is going on but the wife is pretty sure there is something dodgy going on, after searching his phone she finds a few messages from his fancy woman, shocked and disgusted to returns to her best friend who really goes into action and they determine who this woman is. After threatening her a happy family life assumes and the husband confesses, but this time the wife finds herself a male friend to confide in. Their friendship starts to get a little heated, but one night while drinking the wife falls asleep and awakes in her friend’s bed, naked. Assuming he roofied her, despite him promising that he’s innocent they promise not to speak of it or see eachother again but then pictures of her naked arrive on her husbands phone. They break up but she’s determined to work out what’s going on.

At times this is really well produced, but the sound is layered wrong in certain scenes and the background music is way louder than the cast and a few people drop their mic’s, but technicalities aside it’s still a gripping story that constantly twists and turns. The ending is a little bit predictable but not instantly so there is some guessing to be done and the show down at the end is surprisingly violent considering the placid nature of the film otherwise.
