Okafor’s Law Synopsis
Set in Nigeria ‘Okafor’s Law’ (named after a sexist theory) is a comedy movie with social consciousness that follows the story of a slick serial seducer, Chuks (Blossom Chukwujekwu), an “ardent player” who believes that once a man has been with a woman, he forever has access to her. When challenged by his friends to see if he can prove the universality of that stupid theory with three ex-girlfriends within 21 days, he accepts it –like the misogynist he is.
