The Lagos premiere of Nollywood production Journey to Self took place on Wednesday, 21 November at the Silverbird Galleria in Lagos. In attendance were entertainment personalities Kiki Omeili, Kate Henshaw, Uru Eke, Rita Dominic and many more.
Directed by Tope Oshin-Ogun, executive produced by Tosin Sidofor Fressia Entertainment and written and produced by Ashionye Michelle Raccah, Journey to Self is an intense story of friendship, sacrifice, empowerment and self-respect.
Four childhood friends, Regina, Nse, Rume and Alex, receive news that another long time friend of theirs, Uche, has died.
Uche was the magnet that pulled her friends together and over the years had become their shoulder to cry on, so much so in fact that she never felt she could tell them about her own problems.
As part of her last request, the ladies travel to Uche’s home in Abuja for her funeral.
The four ladies, on arriving at Uche’s house, find that she has left a series of letters in which she speaks to them from beyond the grave. The letters provoke her friends to open up on emotional baggage, as secrets and fears are revealed, leading to a journey of self discovery. For Regina, Nse, Rume and Alex the weekend they spend in Uche’s house becomes an emotional roller coaster as individual characters are tested.
