This short film streams the life of Tunji Bankole a young boy with learning difficulty. His parents, Femi and Peju are at odds about the best route to tackle his peculiar needs.
Despite their ideological differences, Femi is determined to preserve the sanctity of his family but Peju isn’t as keen about a good natured resolution for the sake of their marriage or the cohesion of the family unit.
A typical of a 9 year old boy, Tunji is constrained in his performance of some elementary tasks, but he can solve advance mental maths in milliseconds, sometimes faster than a calculator. Whereas his unique skills win him admiration in some circles, he incurs the wrath of others who see him as ‘a cheating freak’.
