Omo Mi

Omo Mi follows Amina, a young Nigerian-American girl who has to navigate an unexpected pregnancy and possible abortion while dealing with her overbearing mother, Halima, who is vehemently pro-life. Set over the backdrop of Egungun masquerade and Yoruba mysticism, this story explores the notions we impose on women’s sexual and physical beings and how these impositions ultimately lead to generational hurt.
