The Son of the House: Julie and Nwabulu – two women who have been abducted – decide to tell each other their stories ‘to pass the time’. while they wait to be ransomed by their loved ones.
In telling their stories, both women find that their lives cross at important junctures. Nwabulu, a one-time housemaid and now a successful fashion designer, finds that Julie has the answers to the one ache she has carried in her heart since her late teens. Julie, a septuagenarian who has lived a life of subterfuges – each one bigger than the last, finds that she must now confront her biggest lies.
Men Don't Die: In the possession of stolen lucre, Brume Lauva takes a big step and decides to run away from a life he has known for more than a decade; a life of consistent failures, and from a girlfriend that shattered his heart and his last feeble grip on a broken dream. Lagos, he believes, could offer another chance at life, where he could mend his broken heart, and perhaps start to dream again. But en route to his land of promise, a fatal bus crash occurs, and Brume is the only survivor—without a scratch. He flees the scene of the accident and hitchhikes his way to Lagos. In Lagos, he begins to live again. He gets reconnected to a long-lost friend, with whom he shared dreams in the university. He invests the stolen money and finds love again. He gets all he craved on a plate—money, comfort and something resembling happiness. But there is more to this world—a monumental text that would change his life forever. MEN DON’T DIE is a thought-provoking story of love and money; death and spiritualism. About a man’s personal struggles against the unfairness of life, in search of true happiness.
