Review

‘Light in the dark’ tells the story of two lovers, who against the wish and permission of their mothers became a couple and began a family and are willing to go to any length for their love.

Surrounded by the darkness of one night’s ordeal perpetrated by a character played by Saidi Balogun, a couple – Rita Dominic and Kalu Ikeagwu – seeks the light that only love can bring.

Directed by Ekene Som Mekwunye, the filmmaker says “The film would show the effects of domestic violence, what it does to women and more importantly, how best victims can handle it.

“The film also shows a little of the friction in inter-tribal marriages and the way men look at issue in such marriages. This film would be a tool to draw awareness of this scourge to a lot of ladies in Africa and as well as look at how it affects families when it happens to married women.”
