The always fashionable actress was dressed casually in blue jeans, and a simple backless grey top. Rita says, “I took a few steps back in terms of acting certain kinds of films more than 3 years ago. The scripts were getting so bad and most of the good producers are not shooting as much so that made it even worse. Don’t get me wrong once in a while I will see a script that is half decent and I will grab it.”

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.
