From the embarrassing scene at the breakfast table in Amaka home, when Nonso mother brings in the girl she wants to become her son second wife, to the heart wrenching moment when Amaka is attacked by the women of her husband village, who despise her for not letting him take a second wife, the film draws a stark line between modernity and cultural traditions that are hard to circumvent.

of the main themes I explore in the film is that the injustice of pressuring a woman or a couple to have a male child is perpetuated and sustained by other women, Anadu said. victims become victimisers. so does Amaka. Desperate to have a baby boy, after spending months trying in vain to adopt one, she ends up stealing one, literally, from another woman womb.

The same can be said of her mother in law who, in accordance with Nigerian Igbo culture, is desperate for her son to have a male heir and is trying to persuade him to take a second wife, in spite of his reluctance and Amaka open opposition.

For Amaka Okoli, a modern minded businesswoman living in urban Nigeria with her loving husband Nonso and their daughter, the sex of the baby she expecting is irrelevant.
