SEASON 1: SIMI (2011)
‘Simi’ is a young girl who experiences the horrors and repercussions of rape in rural Nigeria. At 18, and fresh out of high school in the village of Agbome, Simi dreams of going to the University in the city and marrying her high school sweetheart, Henry.
However, those dreams are shattered when her innocence is stolen as she is raped by Efe, her close friend Lillian’s brother. Shattered, bruised and emotionally battered, Simi has to decide if to report the incidence or suffer in silence.
How will her parents handle it? Will Henry still love and adore her? Will Efe ever pay for his sins? These questions haunt Simi as she battles with her self-loathing. Then everything goes from bad to worse when she discovers she is pregnant.
Rejected and betrayed by the ones she loved, hers is a heart-wrenching tale of dreams broken and hopes dashed, and of the emergence of a fighter from the ashes of defeat.
‘Simi‘ stars a stellar cast that includes Belinda Effah playing the lead role of Simi, Tina Mba and Kayode Odumosu (a.k.a Pa Kasumu) as her mother and father respectively, and other shining lights like Jide Kosoko, Nobert Young, Kate Adepegba, Ireti Osayomi-Bakare and Gloria Young.
