Anjola's boyfriend, Jimi, dies unexpectedly during their NYSC year. When his mother comes for the body, she warns Anjola not to darken the doorsteps of their family house with a pregnancy she is not even sure is her son's own. After her parents throw her out of the house, Anjola is determined to raise her daughter, Simisola, by herself. She does so for five years, till one of Jimi's brothers tracks her down. He convinces her to bring Simisola to meet their family. Anjola is unsure what their mother's reaction will be, especially when the unofficial head of the family, Folarin, Jimi's older brother, hates her guts on sight.
