It’s a beautiful thing how the Nigerian movie industry has begun to awake to rapid, story telling upgrades and who better to fit in the flickering trend than some of the industry’s best for the new movie, Broken?
Broken stars Nse Ikpe-Etim, Kalu Ikeagwu, Bimbo Manuel and Maksat Anpe
in this gripping story-type that revolves round a family whose terrible decisions cause them the series of heartaches they experience, year in and out.
Hope you love the official synopsis
