Published

 on

Last week, we brought you the trailer to LowlaDee‘s new project, titled ‘Brave’ {Click here if you missed it}. The full feature has been released, and we’re pleased to bring it to our readers.

Check out a synopsis of the film:
BRAVE is an inspirational short film inspired (but not based) by a true story on page 88 of T.D Jakes ‘The Lady, Her Lover & Her Lord’. It is a heartfelt story based on the lives of a young couple, Nathan (Wole Ojo) and Layo (Adesua Etomi) who seem to have happiness, love and comfort. Though married for two years, Layo is beginning to worry about her failure in getting pregnant. When eventually she does get pregnant, she hides the news from Nathan, preparing to break the good news on their anniversary dinner outing in two days. Unfortunately, that night will mark the beginning of a nightmare both may not wake from, and suddenly, love is not enough.

Watch the film here:

    I really hate the stigma that africans associate with disability..we really need to take into considerations and provide government sponsored programs /subsidized programs that will enhance their living and reduce caregiver burden. It just saddens me. Being disabled is not a death sentence. It can be managed.

    I actually know someone who this happened to. He was involved in a car crash and got paralyzed waist down.He was engaged and the fiancee wanted to stay and go through with the wedding but he persuaded her to leave him.This happened over 15 years ago, dude is still single, still in a wheelchair, can barely use his hands, he hardly talks and now his speech is slurred. Sigh!Life sa.

      My dear it is a shame that he allowed his condition win. life happens and not everyone can handle certain unprecedented change. He needs to stop feeling sorry for himself as it was never his making let him go out and socialize with his kind and live again.

      You want him to stop feeling sorry for himself, yet you want him to only socialize with his own ‘kind’. Do you see how that logic might be a problem?

    “Love always comes at cost that only the brave can pay for…the power of love God has given us is so strong that it can tear down walls and flatten all mountains”

    Love is such a beautiful thing and this short film portrays the ups and downs of love and how we must remain BRAVE through it all.

    I must say that I did shed more than one tear and I am proud to say that lol. Well done to the producers, directors and the whole cast. Simply amazing x

      Well not everyone listens to their family/friends. There are guys that still stays. So that shouldnt be a yard stick for everyone in the society. Im sure other people would have told her to go.

    This got me emotional..and I pray to God to teach me how to truly love, no matter the situation.

    His Grace is sufficient for us. I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. These are not mere words! I was all teary, nice message.

    Mahn I couldn’t stop crying. Beautiful! Although the wife was annoying at some point but then again it can happen to the best of us. I’ve loved Wole Ojo since he was in that AMBO reality Tv show.

    So touching! But actually in some cases (and most times) the person might not be able to recover from the disability. It’s a painful and tough situation but love shouldn’t be conditional and like the woman said asking God to help us love our spouses right is indeed a necessary prayer. I also wish Nigeria will create a conducive environment for those with disability and stop d negativity. We need employment laws that does not discriminate against disability and even little things like reserved car parks for those in wheelchairs can go a long way to help.

    why didnt his family come to help out?they let his wife do it all and give up everything. what if he wasn’t married then? in situations like this, everyone should help and if they did his wife may not have left in the first place

    • ozyy

      April 28, 2014 at 1:16 am

      He is an orphan, his sister moved in to help after his wife left.

    Wow!!! One thing tho!Thank God for a good mother and boss. They were there to constantly remind her. In life the ppl you look up to makes a lot of difference. A good mother agiid heart who understands nd knows what is right even when it doesn’t make you happy. Where there’s love, there’s life!!! God pls give me the Grace to love even in the hard times. Nice one

    i am 19, never had a boyfriend talkless of falling in love but honestly this piece has taught me about true love. not the kind of love we as teens tend to have mainly because of the abs or the hips.
    lessons for my future
    Nice movie

    I have been trying to recollect the place i had seen the dark-skinned girl in the 3rd scene.
    She resemble the girl in the Orijin with Seyi Law.

    Nice one!

    @ Solo Act…My father is a Nigerian man, my mother was ill and confined to a wheelchair and he stuck with her as her health degenerated till death! He wouldn’t get a nurse or let us (adult children help) he did the bathroom runs etc all by himself… I don”t even want to talk about how much money went down the drain, even when the doctors said there was no point, he kept spending all he had to keep her comfortable…That is what a marriage is, we don”t see the future but I hope i can find someone who will stick with me when “shit hits the fan”…And I hope I can stick with someone that way, defects and all…otherwise, it makes no sense

    Lord teach me to love..in the 1 Corinthians 13 way! This piece really made me cryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. I’ve been struggling so much with love, this piece just revealed that I am not near there yet…God help us all.

    Turned me into a blubbering mess it did! I was crying hot tears. Its a good movie with a profound message.
    That said; Wole Ojo reminds me of Denzel Washington and I’m impressed to note that Adesuwa Etomi is the lovely girl I used to see at Church and gist with. Haven’t seen her in a while. She’s so down to earth and friendly. I wish them both the very best and would love to see them more.

    This is by far the most realistic love film I have ever watched. kudos to Lowladee.

  45. Wamide

    April 29, 2014 at 3:43 pm

    Beautiful piece..I cried even though I watched this at the office…@lowladee(Dolapo)..this is a great one. I went on to pray to God to help me love my husband unconditionally…and I pray to love others unconditionally too..Love isn’t just about marriage.

    I read somewhere that “Love is Verb”. It is not a feeling or a thing, it is an act. This movie portrays love for what it is; a conscious effort to be or do something. Nice!

    April 30, 2014 at 5:14 pm

    Oh Jesus! it’s really touching! emotional! it’s good to fall in Love. Thump up! I love this, i will watch it a million times…. Great!!!

    Nice story, the message delivered within a short time. My hero is the wife’s mother; but for her the wife would’ve gone astray. Isn’t love meant to be for better for worse? Let’s I forget there is ability in disability, so life goes on.

  52. OLAWALE

    Good plot, nice dialogue, wonderful characters….that actually ‘wore’ the script! The only issue is the lighting scene between the mother and layo. the scene also didn’t have good cinematography. But overall, the movie is more of a ‘ministration’…it will be evergreen in my mind!
