Debbie (Adesua Etomi) is a talented gospel singer that worshipped God with her voice. She sang the lead in the church choir and was talented enough to become a recording artist. She was married to Moses (Blossom Chukwujekwu) and he appeared to have lost his identity in the marriage.

As Debbie prepared for stardom Moses found any excuse to hit her. She kept the physical abuse a secret and carried on as though all was well.  

Tom (Majid Michel) was the music producer who saw through Debbie’s façade. He was impressed with her talent but also sensed her pain. He developed a personal interest in her and worked on her record deal.  

Instead of the music producer being the typical snake in the grass, it was Brenda (Ini Edo), who was a slick journalist with an agenda. Brenda had a history with Moses and as she conspired to get him in her life, she got her hands on some information that she used to make it happen.

This story is told side by side as Mike is in the mental ward we learn of his past. It’s confusing at first because there are no subtitles to inform the audience that the story is shifting to a prior period. It’s slow moving but not in a boring way. We are introduced to Mike’s mother played by Paulina Oduro and Angie (Kafui Danku), Mike’s fiancée. There is animosity between these women but it’s not clear why at first.

The story starts where Fiifi (Prince Osei) is sleeping with various women and one announces she is pregnant. Fiifi isn’t pleased by the news and literally kicks her out of his home upon notice.

Meanwhile, Yvon (Yvonne Nelson) is being stalked by a psychic/artist who draws premonitions of her life. Fiifi and Yvon meet and fall for each other. While Yvon fights the negative sprit that is driving her crazy, Fiifi deals with a co-worker who is adamant about sleeping with him.

Jude (Leo Mezie) had his eyes set on Amanda (Ini Edo). She was his client and although she appreciated his legal services and friendship, her heart belonged to Franklin (Mike Ezuruonye). Franklin had been experiencing some harassment by the police department because he looked similar to a culprit that they were searching for. 

When Amanda hired Jude to defend Franklin against the police, Jude also made the mistake of believing that Franklin was the criminal at large. Jude set out to have the police kill Franklin in order to protect Amanda from him while it also conveniently eliminated the competition for Amanda’s heart. 

The day came when Amanda witnessed the police shoot Franklin to death and she was consequently traumatized. Jude comforted her while he pretended he would make the police pay for their actions but the truth was that he was satisfied that Franklin was gone and he thought he had a chance to win Amanda’s love. 

It turned out that Franklin had an identical twin named Nicholas. Nicholas (Mike Ezuruonye) was stolen at birth and both men were unaware that they had a sibling. Nicholas grew up poor and lived a life of crime and he was actually the guy that the police were searching for and not Franklin. 

Lo and behold, Amanda coincidentally met Nicholas in Lagos and fainted at the sight of him. She believed he was Franklin and Nicholas had no idea who she was. Long story short, Amanda learned that Franklin and Nicholas were twins and that their biological mother died after giving birth to them. 

Nicholas and Amanda fell in love while Nicholas suffered the pain of never meeting his brother and the guilt that Franklin died for his crimes. 

The situation came to a boiling point because Nicholas was the criminal that Jude believed he shielded Amanda from but instead Nicholas became the man she wanted to marry which, left Jude out in the cold again. Determined to have Amanda, Jude orchestrated his next move.

“In Her Shoes” is a story of friendship and jealousy.  Rukky Sanda and Oge Okoye play Funke and Peju who are best friends. When Ken (Yemi Blaq) visits the village to see his uncle he meets Peju for the first time. He’s a refined businessman who lives in Lagos and Peju sees him as a ticket out of the village. He leaves his business card with Peju and she misplaces it. But all is not lost because Funke steps in and makes nice to Ken’s uncle and manages to get her hands on Ken’s phone number and she gives it to Peju.  

Everything works out and the story jumps to two years later when Peju is married to Ken. This marks the first fault in the drama because the audience is robbed of the entire courtship between Ken and Peju. The next thing we know, Funke moves to the city to live with Peju and Ken to pursue her goal of becoming a seamstress. Of course we know where this is heading. Ken finds himself attracted to Funke and they have an affair right under Peju’s nose.

The story began in the past when the Benin Kingdom was flourishing. The community was blessed with the riches of life and the King even had three wives. He was also blessed with three virgins whose only plight in life was to live and die for the throne. 

One of the virgins, Amenze (Okawa Shaznay), broke the law and lost her virginity to a prince. When she discovered she was pregnant she attempted to flee the land with the prince in fear of being killed. Amenze got away but unfortunately, the prince was killed. Months later she gave birth to a little girl but died during labor. 

The movie jumped to the future where Osarugwe (Rita Dominic) was married to Ovie (Yemi Blaq). She was a schoolteacher and well versed in history. She had an affair of the heart with Prince Azuwa (Joseph Benjamin) and although the two never touched each other, her husband believed they were lovers. 

Osarugwe’s husband threw her out of the house in a jealous fit and she naturally fell into the arms of Azuwa. They later married and when Osarugwe was seven months pregnant, her ex-husband reappeared to once again accuse her of infidelity. The two fought and Osarugwe accidentally killed him and Azuwa made a bold movie and took the blame for it. 

Azuwa’s time in prison actually saved his life because as Osarugwe continued her study of history she discovered an eerie connection to her ancestors of the Benin Kingdom. History was actually repeating itself and Osarugwe set out to change its course.

An emotional family drama that bridges bickering, secrets, and love while focusing on the fact that family is family regardless of blood.

 

Desmond Elliot directs a proficient cast and a compelling story that doesn’t have a dull moment. There is some violence and strong language but not excessive.

This is a well-executed story that concludes with that warm and fuzzy feeling, translating that everything is going to be okay.
