When he finds out the mother of his son is in labour, John begins to panic. How do you raise a son in a world where men’s bad behaviour is not only ignored but excused?
As a second-generation Nigerian John has been raised in a community where homophobia and archaic gender norms run rife. What do you do when everything you know about being a man doesn’t equal being a good person?
An exploration of masculinity and men’s violence against women.
