Distance Between

Distance Between

Mercy Johnson plays a woman called Mosun and Rita Dominic plays a woman called Preye. They are best friends from childhood into adulthood. The root of Preye’s wild and promiscuous behaviour is the sexual abuse she endured as a child in the hands of her uncle. It is as though by taking control of her sexuality and becoming a seductress in such a dominant way she is trying to wash away that feeling of being powerless as a child. By contrast Mosun is the complete opposite to Preye, disgusted by the idea of casual sex and dowdily dressed to downplay her sexuality. She too has been a victim of child sexual abuse at the hands of her step-father.

Susana is Esther’s “best friend”. Quotations must be used here as her actions don’t convey that of someone who is a best friend. Susana spreads the news of Esther’s miscarriage with glee declaring her a “witch” and a “ritualist.” She curses her to the point of calling her a gold digger and skin bleacher.
