According to the industry watchers, who were privileged to be at the premiere, they squealed that “A Soldier’s Story” is a must watch movie and it is worth a traffic drive to cinemas.
The movie is about Regina, a young female scavenger, who discovered that a man left for dead amongst many corpses littering the street after an ambush on some peace keeping corps members by rebel soldiers was still alive. She is compelled to take him home.
She has no clue, who he is as he had been stripped to his briefs with no form of identification.
The young woman caters for him and nurses his injuries for months with the only sign of life being the rise and fall of his chest that was showing signs of life.
The young man wakes up later from coma with no recollection of who he is or where he is from. The attack has caused him amnesia.
Undaunted by his condition and the consequences of taking a total stranger home during the war times, Regina finds ways to cater for and nurse him back to good health, while keeping him hidden particularly from a group of bandits that come around regularly to intimidate her and her little brother.
He soon begins to develop feelings for her and she in turn fell for him as they are always together and hardly in contact with other people apart from her younger brother.
He begins to regain his memory through a slow process and eventually, he is able to have a total recall and Regina, the lady who took him home and nursed him back to health, is heartbroken to find out that he has another life back home in Nigeria.
‘A Soldier Story’ would certainly be a box office, when it is eventually released into the Nigerian cinemas in the next few weeks.
