Winner of last year’s inaugural Shorts Challenge Pitch Contest, this is a magical Afro-futurism story about Uzoma Nwosu, a young Nigerian-American woman, who goes on a supposedly normal trip to her local African grocery store. A single turn down the wrong aisle propels her routine grocery shopping experience into a mystical traditional Igbo wedding.
