Trailer of the long awaited drama directed by Andrew Dosunmu, about a West African immigrant living in Brooklyn. The film tells the story of a newly-married Nigerian couple in Brooklyn who own and manage a small restaurant while struggling with fertility issues.
At long last, handsome Ayodele Balogun, owner of a small Nigerian restaurant in Brooklyn, will wed his beautiful fiancée, Adenike, and they will start a new life together in the United States. Their traditional Yoruba wedding culminates in a ceremony where Adenike is named for her yet-to-be-conceived son, George.
