Six years after the civil war, a young officer from the middle belt gets entangled in a romantic relationship with a beautiful O-level student from the Southeastern part of Nigeria. Their budding romance was almost ruptured by endless military postings. Now heavily pregnant, her walls came crumbling when the news of her husband’s involvement in a botched coup attempt hits the headlines.
‘76, directed by Izu Ojukwu and produced by Izu and Adonijah Owiriwah celebrates the quality of the true African woman by exploring the usually invisible pain of a soldier’s wife; it highlights the enduring Nigerian cultural values of courage, resilience, patience, loyalty, faith and family.
’76 features Ramsey Nouah, Rita Dominic, Chidi Mokeme and many more.
