Ade Sultan Sangodoyin’s short film centers around a teenager coming to terms with his sexuality in a society that keeps a firm lid on disclosure of of their identity.

1. It delves into the complexities of sexuality, a difficult topic to address in Nigeria

2. It’s beautifully Shot

3. It has a fresh cast. Far from the usually ensemble of your typical Nollywood movie
