Uche Jombo is the dynamite that explodes in Nollywood movies. She leaves a long lasting impression on the viewer of her movies and I actually gave her excellent marks for her gripping “Damage” trilogy (damage,My life my damage, My country their damage) on the traumatic consequences of domestic violence in homes: a socioeconomic cause thats very personal to her. “My life, My Damage” deals with drugs and HIV; while “My Country, Their Damage” is on human trafficking and human labour.
Uche Jombo is the star of prolific Nollywood filmmaker Chico Ejiro’s latest movie “When Dreams Fall Apart’ ” which reminds me of many unforgettable circumstances in relationships.
The film has already won awards, including the Best Movie Award in Nigeria at the 2013 Abuja International Film Festival.
When dreams fall apart is a story about a girl on the run, to save her life. When her uncle whom she’s living with died, the death was framed on her so she ran away to stay with a group of friends who are into big time runs. One night they set out to hustle and she meets a rich expatriate guy who pays to sleep with her. In the process of their love making the guy had a heart attack and died instantly.
The girl takes off again, a fugitive running from the law. She gets knocked down by a moving car and she’s rushed to a nearby hospital. The rich young man who hit her falls in love with her and her romance kicks off against the will of the guy’s parents who have a rich and influential background. They begin to dig into the girls past and expose her dirty secrets but the guy is blinded by love still goes ahead with the wedding plans
On the wedding day as they were about to be joined as husband and wife, we see a band of policemen who surrounds the venue and arrest the bride to be. When dreams fall apart is an intriguing story of love, betrayal, murder and pain.
