Living In Bondage: Breaking Free
Living in Bondage is finally on Netflix and here's a review of the movie in 15 thoughts.

In November 2019, the much-anticipated sequel to the 1992 drama thriller, Living in Bondage was released. The film, titled “Living in Bondage: Breaking Free” was Ramsey Nouah’s directorial debut and it went on to gross 168 million Naira, finishing 11th position on the list of highest-grossing Nigerian films.
