Entrust is a new short film based on a true life story of a young girl who suffered rape, abuse, molestation, assault and child labour in the hands of her guardians who had promised her a better life.
Entrust is directed by Stanley Aguzie and stars Big-Tony Ogbetere, Uchechi Esiagu, Idiatat O Idiata, Stella Nkwocha, Dan Dollars Daniel, Okeke Obunike Chris, Adaeze Esiagu, Queeneth Esiagu, Onyinyechi Adiodo.
Speaking about the motive for the movie, the director said, “Until everyone chooses to speak up, child rape, abuse, molestation and child labour will not stop.”
“Everyday, children go through this trauma in the hands of their supposed guardians. Child rape is on the increase in Africa. Like in the case of Ese, I heard the man who and raped her was released from the police custody to go live his life, while the little Ese is left to suffer the trauma of the abuse.”
