The Supreme Price (Advised 16) plus Director Q&A
May 26, 2015

The on-going struggle for women’s rights in Nigeria and the evolution of the pro-democracy movement come together in the remarkable story of Hafsat Abiola. M.K.O. Abiola, her father, won a historic victory in Nigeria's 1993 Presidential Elections, raising the hopes of a nation and ending years of military dictatorship, but shortly after the election, the result was annulled and he was arrested. Three years later, Hafsat’s mother, Kudirat Abiola, a champion for human rights in Nigeria and a leader of the pro-democracy movement was tragically assassinated.

The personal and the political are poignantly brought together in this epic story as Hafsat and her relatives recount not just the tragedy of their family, but the troubled and bloody history of Nigeria since independence in 1960.
