Set in Lagos, Nigeria, the film follows Bola Ogun, a dedicated counselor who brokers reconciliation sessions between convicts and their victims. When her own daughter is murdered, she too must confront what it means to forgive. The film is notable for the spellbinding performance of BAFTA Breakthrough Brit Susan Wokoma as Bola, and award-winning Nigerian actress Kate Henshaw as Folashade, the police officer seeking justice for Bola.
