The Widow's Son - Hausa Version-Subtitled in English

The one hour, thirty minutes movie opens with the chaotic scene where the widow and her children, a boy and his sister are thrown out of the house by her deceased’s relatives. Her attempts to lay claims to what rightly belongs to her and her children by normal sentiment, are thwarted as her ‘smart’ brother-in-law takes all since, after all, he is the next-of-kin in her husband’s will.
The next few years see the widow and her children going through harrowing experiences, clawing at survival straws.
