Filmed in the remote villages of picturesque Nigeria, “ENI” is the coming-of-age story of a girl whose passions are trapped by her inability to communicate with those around her. She does not have the language to convey what she feels. The traditional customs, beliefs and superstitions of Eni’s family present an additional obstacle for this beautiful and strong-willed girl who faces typical teenage angst while she begins to discover the mysteries and challenges of womanhood. Jacob, a passionate and quirky artist becomes the focus of her awakening desire, but as in any small town, competition for his attention and his access to 21st century distractions frustrate her advances. With an amazing cast of local actors and a stunning performance by Victoria Osumah, “ENI” never fails to surprise, enlighten and even shock you with the tension between a traditional culture and the advances of modern Africa and its toll on young adults navigating through it all.
