Royal Arts Academy, in conjunction with Nollywood Workshop, is set to release a new movie Code of Silence. It’s a gritty tale of a young girl Adanma who was gang-raped by two men on one night while coming home from school. This singular act is the catalyst that triggers a number of catastrophic events. One of the rapists is a prominent politician and the other his aide. As a result, Adanma’s family, being of humble origins, are afraid to report the matter to the relevant authorities, as rape is considered a taboo in society and that it wiould make her undesirable for marriage. The film explores important themes of gender violence, as well as family planning and other health messages.

The movie stars an array of talented actors such as Ini Edo, Patience Ozorkwor, Desmond Elliot. Omoni Oboli, Kofi Adjorlolo, Amaechi Muonagor, Shawn Faqua and Makida Moka.
