A woman is faced with an ethical paradox if she wants to repair her failing marriage in this drama from director Andrew Dosunmu. Adenike (Danai Gurira) is a Yoruba woman who has left West Africa for Brooklyn, and also just married a fellow emigrant, restaurateur Ayodele (Isaach de Bankolé). Ayodele is eager to have children, and at their wedding, his mother (Bukky Ajayi) even names their first child George. However, a year and a half later, Adenike has been unable to conceive, even though the couple has been trying regularly. Ayodele is growing increasingly frustrated with his wife, and Adenike isn't sure where to turn. When Adenike confides to her friend Sade (Yaya Alafia) about her troubles and the toll they've taken on her peace of mind, Sade makes a surprising suggestion, that if acted upon may either save Adenike's family or destroy it. Mother of George received its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
