'76' 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. It is visually pure, emotionally engaging and amorously therapeutic.

The anticipated movie stars talented actors like Ramsey Nouah, Rita Dominic, Ibinabo Fiberesima, Chidi Mokeme, Memry Savanhu, Adonijah Owuruwa, Daniel K. Daniel, Nelly Ekwereogu and Shuaibu Ebenehi Adams.

There was recently a special screening for former Nigerian Army general, Olusegun Obasanjo, who was President of Nigeria from 1999 to 2007.
