Written and directed by Kevin Apaa, the story follows Funmi played by Dada and her return home from the US with her fiancé (Romon Thomson) to visit her parents in Nigeria. But Funmi’s father disapproves of their love and plans to settle down.

Meanwhile, Funmi’s cheating ex-Boyfriend (Egbuson) is interested in coming in between the union to win her back.
