On what the movie is about, Odetola said:”The movie is produced by me and directed by Gboyega Ashowo with the right team of cast and crew it’s been a very good and challenging journey.
“The theme of the movie is on abuse, abuse in different forms. Abuse from parents to children. When we are talking about abuse from parents to children, unknowingly a lot of parents destroy the self-esteem of their children right from childhood through the things they say and the things they vocalize. These children grow up to have low- self-esteem. These in turn affects their relationship with other people.
“The abuse addressed in this movie is that of men .In this part of the world, the society has made men believe they cannot express their feelings, their pains. So a lot of men suppress this anger. There are two things that happens in the course of doing this. At times, it leads to depression and at times it leads to build up of anger and emotions. When it gets to that limit, it’s like a breaking point, they could react the way they shouldn’t. These are some of the things we addressed in this movie and the need for people to undergo therapy”.
Seun Akindele who also starred in the movie said :”For everyone who sees this movie should see some moral lessons that needs not to be overlooked in a family atmosphere. It teaches individuals what to do or what to expect from your marital status. It’s a whole lot of lessons besides that”.
Asked why she starred in the movie, Allwell Ademola said:” Jumoke is a spiritual writer, her story always makes sense and that is the kind of movie I like to feature in.My character in the movie is hilarious. You can’t just help but laugh”.
