Mr. & Mrs. is a powerful screenplay that captures the lives of two couples and the complexities of their relationships. Couple #1 Mr. & Mrs. Abah are very affluent and seem to have it all except, Mr. Abah is particularly ashamed of his wife’s “wretched” background. Although Mrs. Abah is a lawyer, she is a daughter of a ”wash man” or as she insists “a dry cleaner” and that is not enough for Mr. Abah. What unfolds in beautiful pictures and dialogue is an emotionally abusive relationship led by Mr. Abah, consistent with the negative stereotype of the African man. Will this couple be able to salvage their relationship?
Couple #2 are close friends of the Abahs. The wife is an executive in one of the top companies in Nigeria. Gender roles are switched as she is the bread winner of the family and has the most understanding and supportive husband. Everything looks so perfect with her perfect husband. But, look closely. Is it really perfect? Will this couple stay together?
