At the couple's wedding, Adenike's imperious motherin-law (Bulky Ajayi) confers the conventional Yoruba blessings, including the right of naming their future son George. But as the months pass and Adenike fails to get pregnant, the pressures of familyand a culture that places all responsibility for conception upon the wifeincrease, and only her more worldly friend Sade (Yaya Alafia) stands by her side and bears all her secrets.
