‘Muna’ is the story of a spirited girl raised by her grandmother; the last surviving member of their family. Muna’s driving desire to provide a better life for herself and grandmother in the land of milk and honey leads to shady characters that will change the trajectory. Landing her smack dab into the hands of traffickers. That experience turns her once golden heart into one driven by stone cold revenge on those who stole her innocence. In her grand plan, love was never on the agenda. When secrets and betrayal complicate her strategy, she has a tough decision to make. Will she remain a prisoner of her past or allow love to set her free?
The film, which seeks to marry the gap between Hollywood and Nollywood was shot on location in Nigeria and USA, written and directed by Kevin Nwankwor. Unoma Nwankwor takes credit for the story.
Adesua plays Ugomma in this riveting story that is centered on human trafficking and its repercussion. Other cast members include Adam Huss (Kantos from Power), Onyeka Onwenu, Robert Miano, Folarin Falana (Falz), Ebele Okaro, and Sharon Ifedi.
This year is looking very exciting for Nollywood; the sort of diversity we experienced last December is being continued as the likes of Ebonylife and Inkblot are transitioning into the release of gritty films this year, a departure from their usual comedies and romance.
An excited Adesua wrote on her Instagram “I can’t wait for you guys to see what we created.” Muna is coming towards the end of the year. Visit the film website for more information, Munamovie.com.
