New movie ‘Broken’ will premiere on Thursday, March 28 at Silverbird Cinema, Abuja. The movie, which stars Nse Ikpe Etim, Kalu Ikeagwu, Bimbo Manuel amongst others, was produced and directed by Bright Wonder (the producer of Away & Beyond). Speaking on the experience, Kalu Ikeagwu said ‘Broken’ is one movie he can’t seem to forget in a hurry. He said;
At a point I was crying watching Nse act. It was like a real life scene to me. The storyline is touching, I’ve never worked on a movie like this.
Broken is a social movie that addresses the menace of child abuse, neglect, trafficking, exposing its adverse effects and repercussions on the Nigerian child and on the Society and hence is a project that seeks to reaffirm the place of the family as the bedrock of the society, hereby using the motion picture as a channel implored at raising public awareness against the dreadful menace of child abuse’.
Nse Ikpe Etim plays the role of a woman who tries to bury her past, move on in life and pretend that the past never existed. But as always, a dirty past has a way of rearing its ugly head; the two children she left in the past surface and turns her ‘perfect’ life to a living hell in double proportion. Nse is not the only act with ‘living and troubling’ past in the movie, Bimbo Manuel who plays the role of Nse’s husband is the father of their house girl, a secret he desperately wants to keep away from Nse. Kalu Ikeagwu, the philandering corper had a ‘bushmeat’ in the village girl that proves too strong to devour and digest. One way or the other, the lives of the three had a meeting point where sanity, life, happiness and silence got broken.
