Produced by first-time cinema producer, Sandra Okunzuwa who also doubles as the lead, the movie follows the story of a lady who finds love again after being stood up at her wedding. It has now gone on to set a new record after it has dominated the Nigerian cinemas for nine weeks straight.

According to reports by the Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN) for November 24- 30, 2023, Nigerians have splurged over ₦60 million watching the film. Despite being on the 11th spot on the Top 20 Nigerian Box Office charts, the rom-com was still able to achieve this new feat.
