RMD spoke during the screening of the movie at the Film House Cinema in Lekki, ahead of its release in cinemas nationwide today.

It tells the story of Salma and Goni (Adam Garba) and those around them; one captured and forced to work for the insurgents as a skilled mechanic, the other kidnapped along with other girls from her school to serve the lust and drive home the agenda of their abductors.

In the midst of the betrayals and suspicions that make up the abductors’ camp, they find love, strength, and will to survive and escape back to the life they were taken away from. Soon they realised that their love will pay the ultimate sacrifice for survival as acceptance, reintegration become a nightmare.
