Rape is one of the most deplorable things that could happen to a young girl. However, in Nigeria, it happens on a daily bases. According to a UNICEF report, one out of 4 girls have been raped or sexually molested before the clock 18.
The 2015 report reveals that 31.4 per cent of women in Nigeria have their first sexual experience was via rape. This statistics is enough to get us talking about this menace.
In order to raise awareness, Legendary FilmMaker, Tunde Kelani produced and directed a short film titled “To Live Again”
The film, written by Yinka Egbokhare, was sponsored by the Woman Helping Hands Initiative (TWHHI), with the wife of Nigeria’s Vice President, Dolapo Osinbajo being the executive Producer.
A once lively teenager suddenly stops talking and starts keeping to herself. She attempts suicide and is brought into the Child and Adolescent Mental Clinic in a General Hospital. She refuses medication but her school’s counselor visits her and gradually starts her on her way to recovery.
The film shed more light on the reality of rape and the psychological effect of the crime on the victims. It also admonishes all stakeholders in the society not to keep quiet about the problem of rape in our society.
The film features Bukky Ogunnote, Bunmi Odejimi, Sunkanmi Odejimi and Adebimpe Olaintan.
