The One for Sarah, a romance film, directed by Lyndsey Esejuku and produced by Uche Louis Okocha, recounts the journey of its protagonist figure, Sarah (Beverly Naya).
The film focuses on how women experience emotional abuse in romantic relations, how it is under-reported, and how many in Nigerian culture dismiss it as a trivial matter since it is not visible. Also, how our society encourages women to suffer in quiet.
In actuality, love may constrict our perspective, especially when someone is attempting to alter your reality and keep you feeling as if you owe them your voice. Beverly Naya’s character in the film showed the significance of finding one’s voice and walking away from an abusive relationship.
The One for Sarah is a stunning cinematic experience that brilliantly conveys the complexities of emotional abuse, featuring Beverly Naya, Bimbo Ademoye, Daniel Etim Effiong, Bucci Franklin, Uzor Arukwue, Adunni Ade, and a host of others, and will be released in theaters on October 28th, 2022.
Trino Motion Pictures’ producer, Uche Louis Okocha, had this to say about the film: “Given how prevalent abusive relationships have become in our society, we are pleased to be able to contribute to shedding light on the subject. It’s an upbeat narrative that the public will find relatable “.
Director Lyndsey Esejuku expertly integrates Ronke Ogunmakin’s imbalanced power dynamic into the story’s fabric. It is without a doubt one of the greatest film depictions of an emotionally abusive relationship and self-discovery.
