Product Description

It is the morning of Tunde's graduation party and things have already begun to unravel. Tunde has managed to alienate his sister, Simisola. His older brother, Ade, persistently plagues him with criticism, and their mother has started drinking again. Unbeknownst to most, Tunde has orchestrated the return of his long estranged father, resurrecting unresolved family anguish against the backdrop of Tunde's celebration. As the day turns to night, old wounds are re-opened and bad habits are revived. Layer by layer, deception and half-truths are peeled away as secrets are uncovered in what will be become the most unforgettable day the family has ever experienced.

Bonus features include a complementary short film, Director's Statement, and Bio, amongst other features.

Olabisi exhibits a sure hand crosscutting among story threads and has a fine rapport with his ensemble cast. Standouts include newcomer Alsup as the well-meaning Tunde, Greens two-faced Dipo and Merriweathers volatile Rhonda. --Eddie Cockrell, Variety

A smart and engaging debut, Olabisis film is notable for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it portrays black middle-class Americans in a normal domestic crisis situation sans guns, drugs, dealers or pregnant teens....Olabisi is most definitely a talent to watch and his film shows an adept camera eye and feeling for his subject matter --IndieWire

Family problems are universal. Everyone is embarrassed by familial fights, secrets, divorces, and betrayals. This movie brilliantly illustrates such universality. ---Ain't it Cool News
