PROD: OKEY OGUNJIOFER
DIR: IZU OJUKWU
DOP: PETER KREIL
Not only is this film a tribute to the struggle of the girl child for survival and relevance in Nigeria and Africa at large, it is a huge testimony to the great potential of African women and their ability to break through the male barrier. In a season when women are being turned to chattels of goons in the toga of terrorism and fundamentalism; in a season when girls have been brazenly kidnapped and enslaved in the gulag of terrorists for endless days, a film glorifying the worth of African womanhood is indeed a welcome idea; and Ogunjiofor must be commended for this timely historical intervention.
