their fights is the psychological torture their children had to go

the production of ‘Damage’ was not an easy one, it was very involving
in terms of budget and other logistics but the quality of movie we
came up with and the response we are getting from the cinemas has
proven that all our efforts was worth it. I am happy about the turn
out of the movie at the cinema, it just shows that Nigerians know and
appreciate a good movie’.
