When MORTAL INHERITANCE swept 10 awards from 16 nominations at the 1st Movie Awards in 1997, audiences around the world including many film critics wondered why until they watched the film.
DESTINY brought them together, FATE thrust them apart. Mortal Inheritance is the tale of two young lovers confronted with the reality and trauma of sickle cell anaemia, in their relationship.
Mortal Inheritance is the dramatic portrayal that intends to create a vivid awareness about sickle cell anaemia, especially among young couples, to check their genotypes, before marriage and the possible consequences. The film also has a subplot, dealing with inter tribal marriage and the need for National integration, through ethnic cohesion. Mortal Inheritance brought fame and fortune for OMOTOLA JALADE EKEINDE and FRED AMATA, winning best actress & best actor respectively and best editing, best director and best picture for ANDY AMENECHI.
