"At 20, Ninah is a veteran wife of 7 years and a mother of 3 who is stuck in an abusive relationship with no hope of change. When news of her gravely ill father reaches her, she disobeys her husband's orders not to go so she can speak her peace to the man who put her in bondage. After her father dies, Ninah refuses to return home and stays instead to run a small restaurant. When news reaches her husband that Ninah is pregnant, he comes to recover the dowry he paid or take home the woman he owns. By any means necessary.

Ninah’s Dowry is the recipient of “Special Jury Award” at the 2013 African Movie Academy Awards, the “Jury Award for Best Film” at 2013 the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival and the “Audience Award for World Cinema” at the 2013 Phoenix Film Festival. "
