2020, 116 min


Mofe and Rosa share a home and also the desire to leave it behind in order to travel far beyond the borders of their native Nigeria. Although all kinds of traps lie in wait to thwart their dreams, neither of them gives up, and each finds a way to live despite the myriad catastrophes they have to face. Offering a vibrant, optimistic account of contemporary Nigeria, the enchantment of This Is My Desire lies in its spontaneity, gentle humour and its precise observation of the surroundings.
