Something Wicked is the story of a widow (Hauwa), whose recently orphaned nephew (Abel), moves into her Lagos home after the murder of his parents in a sectarian crisis in a Northern Nigerian city. Abel has a difficult time fitting into his new family, whilst Hauwa struggles with the challenges of balancing a failing business and single parenthood. This family’s bond is tested when they are thrown in a life threatening situation and we see how easily misunderstandings lead to misconceptions and premonitions are sometimes the only warning we get, in this game of life and death.
