In “Mother of George,”
Adenike and Ayodele (AMC’s “The Walking Dead”
star Danai Gurira and veteran actor Isaach De Bankolé) are a Nigerian couple living in Brooklyn. Following the joyous celebration of their wedding, complications arise out of their inability to conceive a child—a problem that devastates their family and defies cultural expectations, leading Adenike to make a shocking decision that could either save her family or destroy it.
Acclaimed director Andrew Dosumnu (“Restless City“) captures the nuances of this unique and fascinating culture by creating a beautiful, vibrant, and moving portrait of a couple whose joys and struggles are at-once intimate and universal.
