Star actress, Funke Akindele’s role in a new movie entitled, ‘A Wish’ may bring most viewers close to shedding tears. This is a warning to fans warming up to attend the premiere of the film in Lagos soon.
Straight from the stable of Elvis Chucks, the hilarious comedy features other Nollywood notables, such as Patience Ozokwor, Hafiz Oyetoro, Helen Paul, Chris Okagbue, Bishop Imeh and Kola Olaiya, among others.
The movie tells the story of a single mother, an uneducated petty trader, whose greatest wish is to see her child go to school and explore the opportunities that she never had. But fate deals her a numbing blow as her daughter is diagnosed with cancer.
Funke plays the part of the ‘doomed’ daughter, Kemi. She falls in love with a man who jilts her as soon as he learns that she is afflicted with a terminal disease.
The film will tour the cinemas from Dec. 7.
