Damage’ is part of a collection of three distinct but interwoven stories, aimed at advocacy for social issues; each story addresses important problems affecting individuals, families and societies at large. The movie aims to break new grounds in creating precedents in the Nigerian movie industry. This first part of the trilogy ‘Damage’ which is being premiered deals with the issue of domestic violence and the psychological effect it could have especially on the children. A man and his wife love each other immensely yet their lives can only be described as a ‘cat and mouse’ situation as they fight violently almost on a daily basis.
The film stars Uche Jombo (who is also the film’s Producer and Executive Producer) Kalu Ikeagwu, Tonto Dike, Basorge Tariah Jnr. In a chat with Uche, she says ‘Damage’ is a story that needs to be told. Domestic violence is a social issue that has a lot of women suffering in silence so I decided to shoot a film about it. It was necessary to show how it affects not just the couple but even the children in the home’.
