The trailer for the upcoming Ghanaian romance movie from Leila Djansi – Northern Affair which i have been following was released earlier this month and it almost passed under my radar.
The movie follows Esaba (Joselyn Dumas) who is trying to get out of an abusive marriage life with millionaire husband Marc (Jon Germain). Esaba, a nurse, teams up with Dr. Manuel Quagraine (John Dumelo) in a small fishing village to provide healthcare . Sparks fly and the two begin to fall in love but each one has a dark secret that will threaten whatever love they will share. A distraction in Esaba’s marriage in the form of Cara.
Northern Affair which is scheduled to be premiered at the National Theatre in Accra- Ghana on the 3rd of January is already generating buzz as it got nominated for 8 awards including one for Best Picture at the 2013 Ghana Movie Awards.
Leila certainly did a good one on this project going by the trailer and it just might be the Ghanaian movie people would be talking about for the first few months of 2014.
Check out the trailer below.
