Someday a powerful film will be made of the Nigerian-Biafran war that pitted the citizens of Nigeria against one another in a bloody conflict. This is not that film. This is simply a soap opera set amongst the conflict. From cheating spouses to manipulative mothers; from out of wedlock fatherhood to sibling conflict this is just 'One Life to Live' set in Nigeria. Major disappointment considering lead performers.
