After successful screenings in Ghana, Yvonne Okoro’s first, self-produced movie The Contract is heading to Nigeria.
The movie will be screened at Silverbird, Ikeja, on March 15, enewsgh.com can say.
The producers are looking forward to recording some impressive numbers than they had in Ghana.
‘The Contract’ is the story of a successful businessman, Peter Puplampo (Homla Dandala), the ultimate alpha male. He is 40 years old, rich and a staunch bachelor. Despite his mother’s persistent attempts to find him a woman, Peter sticks to his rule of non-committal casual dates, freedom and being in control of his life until the desire to have a child arises.
In his quest to find the woman who will take his money, have his child and disappear, Peter begins a roller-coaster, contracted relationship with Abena Boateng (Yvonne Okoro), a crude but clever local girl who is anything but impressed with Peter’s affluence.
With a clear definitive contract from his lawyer outlining the dos and don’ts of bearing Peter Puplampo’s child, these two opposites must exercise every ounce of willpower not to kill each other until the child is born.
It was directed by Shirley Frimpong-Manso.
