By capturing the moments in the life of Lateefah, the documentary’s protagonist, Adam captures moments of human interaction, culture and traditions to represent African women as a people with agency.

She delves deeper into the theme through the bigger backdrop to her story— the Dada pottery centre, an industry led and run by only women in the heart of Ilorin. This highlights the importance of celebrating and telling the stories of women who are thriving without a patriarchal structure in place.
