“Journey To Self” simply put is a movie every woman should take her man to see.
Starring Nse Ikpe-Etim as 'Nse', Dakore Akande as 'Alex', Ashionye Michelle Raccah as 'Regina', Katherine Obiang as 'Rume' and Tosin Sido as 'Uche’ and cameo appearances by Kalu Ikeagwu, Femi Brainard, Femi Jacobs and Chris Attoh, it is an intense story of friendship, sacrifice, empowerment and self-respect.
Four childhood friends, Regina, Nse, Rume and Alex, receive news that another long time friend of theirs, Uche, has died.
Uche was the magnet that pulled her friends together and over the years had become their shoulder to cry on, so much so in fact that she never felt she could tell them about her own problems.
As part of her last request, the ladies travel to Uche’s home in Abuja for her funeral.
The four ladies, on arriving at Uche’s house, find that she has left a series of letters in which she speaks to them from beyond the grave. The letters provoke her friends to open up on emotional baggage, as secrets and fears are revealed, leading to a journey of self discovery. For Regina, Nse, Rume and Alex the weekend they spend in Uche’s house becomes an emotional roller coaster as individual characters are tested.
‘Journey to Self’ is an intense, dialogue-based movie where the viewer is sure to embark on the same emotional journey as with the characters.
‘Journey to Self’ was released to the cinemas on the 10th of May but screening is yet to be announced. It was nominated for ‘Achievement In Soundtrack’ for the 2013 African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).
