The Ingrid-Mary Okiya written film follows a seemingly naive 19-year-old surrogate who begins to bond with the child she’s bearing for her madam. She becomes determined to be more than just a disposable means to an end.

‘Nkem’ stars Oluchi Odii, Tracey George, Floyd Igbo, Chikamma Romanus, Amosu Mofaramola and music star Essence.

The short film directed by Ayodele ‘Dipe’ Ogundipe, is set to premiere on May 8, 2022 at the annual Yeye Cabaret, an intimate event produced by Eclectic Twenty One to celebrate Mother’s Day.

According to the production company, the short film explores the intrigue of power play, economic opportunity, teenage pregnancy, culture clash and emotional manipulation.

Surrogacy is arguably still one of the most controversial options for battling infertility in our climes.
