Silence, please! Even if the auditorium is a stage in the heart of the largest slum in Nigeria. After all, the young women’s message is one that should be heard.
Stage director Ifeoma Fafunwa, a.k.a. Mrs. F., is faced with the challenge to stage a play addressing the abuse of women in male-dominated Makoko, a settlement built on stilts along the lagoon of Lagos.

A film that demonstrates how art and personal passion can change a society more quickly than politics can.
