'Chetanna ' is the gripping tale of an American returnee whose unbridled past in America has come to haunt his present in Africa.

A marriage gone sour; greed gives way to unprovoked vendetta and deep-rooted deceit until nemesis comes knocking while true love is caught in the web of mindless scheming.

The movie stars Nwokoye alongside Chigozie Atuanya, Ebube Nwagbo, and Ebele Okaro-Onyiuke. It was produced by Chigozie Atuanya, and directed by Ikechukwu Onyeka.


The world premiere of the Igbo language production took place on July 25, 2014, at the inaugural World Igbo Festival of Arts and Culture, which was held at the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton, Virginia.
