The lovers reunite in the city and get married, but after two kids they begin to experience marriage burn out, and eventually get separated. The divorcee each reunites with a new life partner and starts up a new family. A few years later, the mistakes of their past comes hunting, throwing their families and entire life into chaos; having to deal with a daughter who was sneaked out of an asylum where she has been for six years, a second son who has become wild with the street life as a result of frustration, and the son they abandoned in a refuse dump, now in prison on death row.

    Can’t wait. I strongly believe that Nse’s time to shine has come, everyone is starting to see her potential. Every single role she plays these days, she interprets so well. Kudos.

    P.S.: If you haven’t seen her in ‘Mr & Mrs’, you should >>>

    Really I like the fact that nollywood is shooting on red,5d n all but my question is why don’t they get the movies down to the masses I mean those that can’t and weren’t chanced to go see them at the cinemas? Really I don’t understand it. Hell yes I know the make all their money from cinema but for the sake of circulation pls. Don’t they see hollywood? It’s on cinemas and still gets to everyone

      After it is shown at the cinemas, it will be put on dvd/vcd for the ‘masses’. But note once its put in dvd format thats when the pirates move in, thats why most are opting for cinema releases. after shooting on Red, the producer must try and recoup his money first.
