Adenike (Danai Gurira) emigrates from Nigeria to Brooklyn to marry restaurateur Ayodele (Isaach De Bankolé). Following the joyous celebration of their wedding in a gorgeously colorful Yoruba ceremony and their tender wedding night, complications arise. Adenike’s demanding mother-in-law names their not-yet-conceived first son George and expects Adenike to do her duty to the family. Pressure mounts as months pass and the couple fail to conceive a child. The problem defies cultural expectations and devastates the family, leading Adenike to make a shocking decision that could either save or destroy her marriage.  Winner of the Best Cinematography Award (Drama) at the Sundance Film Festival.
