Summary
It's the morning of Tunde's graduation party and things have already begun to unravel. Tunde has alienated his sister; his older brother persistently plagues him with criticism; and their mother has started drinking again. Unbeknownst to them, Tunde has orchestrated the return of his long-estranged father, resurrecting unresolved family anguish. As the day turns to night, old wounds are re-opened and bad habits are revived. Layer by layer, deception and half-truths are peeled away as secrets are uncovered in what will be become the most unforgettable day the family has ever experienced
