There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Free Member Monday — the October 11 screening is free for all AFS members.

The first feature by Nigerian twin-brothers Arie and Chuko Esiri has been compared to Robert Altman and Claire Denis. Like those masters, the Esiris know how to let the technical aspects of film serve their story of two Lagos residents—a factory electrician facing family adversity and a young hairdresser raising her daughter.
