What is the movie “Love and Lies all about?
A young man, Benjamin (Acted by Kanayo O Kanayo) broke up with the woman, Angela, whom he loves when he discovered that she was a carrier of Sickle Cell Anemia, AS just like him.
Benjamin pleaded with Angela that they should go their separate ways because of the sickle cell disease they carry, but Angela did not want that. She wanted them to continue with the relationship, marry, and start a family.
Benjamin knowing what the outcome of their union in the future would be if they got married, pleaded with Angela to move on.
Angela did not move on, she still wanted to marry Benjamin. Benjamin however did move on. He married Ijeoma (Acted by Ola Daniels) who gave birth to only one child, a female, Sharon (Acted by Regina Daniels.)
Meanwhile, before Benjamin married Ijeoma, Angela was already pregnant with Benjamin’s child but did not tell him. Angela gave birth to a female child, Grace (Acted by Chineye Nnebe)
