This impressive drama based on a novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, weaves together the lives of four people swept up in the turbulence of war. Olanna and Kainene are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices in life and love that lead to divisions between them. But soon, their individual situations become secondary, as civil war breaks out and everyone’s lives are endangered.
Featuring spirited performances from BAFTA-winning actors Chiwetel Ejiofor and Thandie Newton.
