Nigeria, 1976. Respected army officer Captain Joseph Dewa and his wife, Suzy, who is from the culturally-disparate southeastern region of Nigeria, eagerly anticipate their first child, but Suzy's family adamantly disapproves of her intercultural marriage. Concurrently, rebellious soldiers on Joseph's base attempt to recruit him into a coup plot to assassinate General Murtala Mohammed, a key player in Nigeria's Civil War. Joseph resists but the plotters are cunning, setting a trap for him and creating barriers of distrust between him and Suzy. It's not long before Joseph is arrested, isolating him from his military brothers and his own family.
[The Hollywood Reporter] "Handsomely shot...Nouah gives a rock-solid lead performance, radiating calm authority and moral unease without a flicker of histrionics. The period-perfect nods to Afrocentric fashion, music and hair are great fun...a crash course in Nigerian cinema for international viewers…striking a healthy balance between educating and entertaining."
