Director Statement

As a child, I witnessed continued negativity in my parents relationship. As I came of age, it dawned on me by experience that when two people are not compatible in many ways, the feeling of love serves as deceit and an ingredient for disaster.

Aajule Keji (Realm 2) is an open ended short film touching on relationship. While it seems to help people decide on their relationship path, the underlying goal is to make people aware of the weight of making a marital commitment.

This story has been told with the maturity that's needed to be objective using as example, ways that marriages were initiated by generations before us who obviously had more success than we have now and surely less marital violence.
