Synopsis

Shot in England and Nigeria this evocative film builds on the lives of African women living in the UK separated from their families.
The stories are based on news reports and Joy's own life, including voicemails left on her answer-machine by the legendary singer Nina Simone, her self proclaimed ‘Spiritual Mother’.
