Description

Based in Nigeria and the United Kingdom, Unbridled chronicles the story of a young woman, Ngozi, who suffers various aspects of abuse from her family.

Ngozi Akachi is a somewhat regular village girl of exquisite beauty, light-skinned and haunted by the strange storm that ravages her village on the night of her birth – a story her mother tells her repeatedly. She is sent to Lagos to live with an uncle after her innocence is snatched away from her by a member of her family. In Lagos, she suffers cruelty from her aunt and forges a strange friendship with another girl, Tiffany Okoro, who comes from a different world all together. And so her strange journey in life's lessons begins – a journey that leads her eventually to England and the many trials she must face until she finds her true voice.
