To celebrate international women’s day, the Deputy British High Commissioner, Harriet Thompson, hosted guests to an exclusive screening of the movie, CHATROOM, produced by Peju Ibekwe. Members of the press, cast and professional organizations had the pleasure of viewing the movie as it debuted for the first time at the residence of the Deputy British High Commissioner, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The Movie, CHATROOM, is an inspiring story of hope and triumph; set against the backdrop of an original TV Dance reality show. It tells the story of a young girl, Ebiere who enters a TV reality show contest to escape the haunting ghost of her past and her present deprivation. However, an incident in the house forces her to go back to the past she had tried to forget and further reveal a disturbing secret that would throw the entire nation into shock.
