Ebony life films in collaboration with Netflix released the Nigerian limited series on the 5th of May, 2022. The series which can be said to be a blockbuster is a dark, twisted, and compelling movie with traditional, murder, fury, deceit, language, violence, n*duty, style, cultural heritage, and art.

The first scene takes us to Sarah and Kemi, two ladies who are discussing Sarah\’s marriage to Kola and appreciating their bond. Meanwhile, Femi, Kola\’s older brother, informs his wife, Yinka, that he has hired an assassin to kill his brother at the wedding.

Sarah greets Kola when she arrives at the rehearsal dinner. When Sarah\’s ex-boyfriend, Kenny, shows up and causes a ruckus, he becomes enraged. A remorseful Sarah is punched in the stomach by Kola in an attempt to apologize.

The following scene depicts Sarah and Kola\’s families at a dinner table, and it\’s clear that Kola\’s family, particularly his mother (Kate Henshaw), despises Sarah and her family due to their poverty. Sarah tells Kemi and her mother about Kola\’s abuse after dinner. While Kemi begs her mother to call off the wedding, her mother tells her that the family\’s financial security is at stake.

During the engagement party, Kola defeats the hitman sent to assassinate him. Sarah reconsiders her decision to marry after some thought. Kola is enraged and attempts to strangle her, but is stopped when Kemi shoots him and kills him.

The photographer who captured them when they were trying to leave the hotel with Kola\’s body starts to blackmail them and demanding for ransom. They kill him as a result of his impossible blackmail. Kola\’s body is later discovered, and the search for the girls begins.

Following their encounter with the organ trafficker, Kemi suffers a serious injury, prompting the girls to travel to her grandmother\’s town for help. They were arrested by the police and taken to an abandoned warehouse by Kola\’s uncle, Uncle B.

Kola\’s mother, seeking vengeance, instructs Femi to murder the girls. When Timeyin notices his hesitation, she offers to help, but instead of attacking the girls, she shoots Uncle B.

With Timeyin pointing a gun at her mother\’s head, the film ends on a cliffhanger.
