How does a daddy’s girl from Nigeria, who’s never been in a toxic relationship in her life, end up with an abusive husband in the UK?
The only child of an entrepreneur and an event planner who found love in an arranged marriage, Nadine knows what it is to be ride or die.
But she’s also a Type A personality who’s survived sleep deprivation, learned to tolerate English weather and British food, battled loneliness despite having close friends, found a solution for her shedding hair, and managed to dip her toe in student life – ever since she started studying Law in the UK as an international student.
Convinced she’s found her soulmate when she starts dating, Nadine hopes for a love marriage and a happy ending.
But Nadine’s dad isn’t particularly looking forward to a father-and-daughter dance at what might be an interracial marriage ceremony for her.
Her closest friend, Stella swears Nadine is having a quarter life crisis when after a plane crash and a health scare, Nadine feels she has no choice but to reconsider her options without rose-colored glasses.
Will the loyalty of a perfectionist to those who aren’t there when she needs them the most, turn Nadine into a domestic violence statistic?
Or will Battered Woman Syndrome cause her to self-destruct in a foreign land, where the weight of generational differences she has carried with her, makes her feel alone?
