Directed by Emem Isong, Code of Silence tells the harrowing tale of a young girl, Adanma, who was gang-raped by two men on her way home from school. This singular act is the catalyst that triggers a number of catastrophic events in the film; One of the rapists is a prominent politician in the state and the other his aide. As a result, Adanma’s family being of humble origins, are afraid to report the matter to the relevant authorities citing the excuse that rape is considered a taboo in society and it will make her undesirable for marriage.
The film stars Ini Edo, Patience Ozorkwor, Desmond Elliot, Omoni Oboli, Amaechi Muonagor, Shawn Faqua and Makida Moka.
