    I found this absolutely boring and bland.
    Nothing fantastic for it to be recognised by AFRIFF or BAFTA.

      Seriously, I thought it was a fantastic and profound short film. It captured so much in its compactness. I miss Africa. The movie told so much.

    In how many Nigerian homes is Aunty Barbara, leader of the women’s group, Elder Pastor Reverend Mrs.

    The way we treat less fortunate people, it’s evil.

    This is interesting. Tells more about the suffering of the African child/domestic violence they experience on the daily basis.
