She flees to Lagos and dies in a car accident on the way. The movie really begins 9 years later when Thomas’ fortune has changed and he is now the rich guy. He is that guy that girls leave their poor husbands for.
It is so hard to give the synopsis of a movie when you as a reviewer cannot make heads nor tail to the movie. This is a pre-warning so that you know from now that for the most part I did not know what was going on in this movie. In the first scene we see two youth corpers acting lovey dovey in a room and then the “6 years later” flashes up and we see Mama G in a graduation gown having her picture taken. How does that correlate I wonder? How the hell you do “6 years later” and nothing has even happened! I do know that Mama goes back to school as an adult that’s about all I know.

It seems like Mercy and Nonso no longer respect themselves. What on earth would make a heavyweight like Mercy even get involved in this trash is beyond me. The others can be forgiven because they are up and coming and would ruin any movie that had any hope. This movie was seriously bad… So So bad. I think I got through about 15 minutes. It is not watchable…
