It was a labor of love and I’m eternally grateful for my family as well as the entire cast and crew for their tireless dedication and commitment to the project,” comments Filmmaker Lolade Leigh-Thompson. “I’ve dreamt of this moment for a lifetime and my dreams are finally coming to pass. This is just the beginning. To God be the glory!”
