The top-grossing Nollywood film of 2013, Flower Girl is director Michelle Bello’s “love letter to Lagos,” presenting sites from the city never before captured on film. Following a long line of Nigerian “makeover films,”  Flower Girl tells the story of frumpy florist Kemi, whose wedding day dreams eventually lead her to question her quest for marriage.
