About 40% girls or more worldwide become victims of rape on daily basis. The demon reincarnated oppressors are largely close acquaintances who take their vulnerability for granted. Girls especially at age range 2-15 years have been subjected to this life wrecking experience. This indeed is gruesome and horrendous to their parents. Unfortunate experience therefore becomes indelible in the hearts of the raped for what cannot be cured must be endured.
But the story of Adenike is different. She is a warrior. She stands taller and more determined in the face of dreaded affliction. Her ego was not raped because she possesses the uncommon power.
Set in a fictitious town called Eretu, Adenike, the princess determines to end the Punisher’s tragic acts which are strengthened by Otun and Ogunmo, Eretu's most powerful lords.
The oppression must be stopped. The only remedy is the exiled Princess Adenike’s return from the Land where mighty men of valour had perished. Her return from the Forest of Death is not only important but must be accompanied by the Pot of Life, the supposed solution to their tragic afflictions.
Will she make it? Was she not going to be destroyed like others? This tradition set play has solutions to these questions.
A must read story in dialogues for every girl whose hope is fainting.
Just believe you are the hero.
