As a young Nigerian I grew tired of the negative, inaccurate, and biased portrayals Western media showed of Nigeria and Africa as a whole. The media would have people believe we are an uneducated, uncivilized, undeveloped nation. We can sit around and complain about the unfair portrayal, but if we do nothing to incite change we will never be better. Chinua Achebe said, “If you don’t like someone’s story, write your own”. This is what we have set out to do. In this documentary we hear from 15 Nigerian immigrants about their journey, and how they came to settle in the United States. We discuss life experiences, first impressions of the US, politics, family, religion, relationships, and hope for the future of Nigeria.
