Uti Nwachukwu resurrects in ‘Whose Meal Ticket’

Award-wining Nollywood actress, writer and producer, Grace Edwin-Okon  is out with another thought-provoking flick, ‘Whose Meal Ticket’, starring industry’s best such as Akin Lewis, Ngozi Nwosu, Uti Nwachukwu, Shaffi Bello, Lisa Omorodion, Tana Adelana, Femi Durojaiye and Iyke Nnabuife among others.

Grace has come of age in the production of ‘edutainment’ flicks, through which she mirrors the society’s different strokes.

In ‘Whose Meal Ticket’, Lisa Philips (Lisa Omorodion) is hell bent on regaining her family’s lost glory, encouraged by her mother, Mrs Philips (Ngozi Nwosu), with advice of devious wiles and strategies of using what she has to get what she wants.

This is just as Mrs. Disu (Shaffy Bello), wife of the rich and influential Lagos socialite Chief Disu (Akin Lewis) battles diabetes. Testing her blood sugar level daily is painful, effortful and potentially damaging. However, in ‘Whose Meal Ticket’, she does it with ease that dispels the phobia for diabetes, proving that you can suffer symptoms like frequent thirst, frequent urination, slow healing wounds, mood swings and fatigue associated with diabetes and still grasp life with zest.

Life would have been ‘hunky-dory’ with the Disus until Lisa’s push into them opens the curtain to social issues like neglect, jealousy, conspiracy, connivances and duplicity that often plagues the rich.

On the other hand, Chief Dish, a father of two has been grooming his more promising son – Taiwo (Iyke Nnabuife) – to take over the helms of his fast growing conglomerate while  Kehinde ( Uti Nwachukwu) – the ‘black sheep’ of the family couldn’t care a hoot whether Taiwo is ‘making waves’ within the family business.

Grace is known for thematic movies such as “Heavy Beauty” a feature-length film which she produced in 2012, followed by  short films like ‘Sister’s keeper’, ‘A Fool’s Tale’, ‘Oblivious’ and ‘The Deadwood’, an award-winning documentary drama ( AMVCA best documentary);  ‘The Maid’, an autism awareness infomercial; ‘Tunnel’, a feature film for Parables Entertainment; ‘Sting’, a feature film for 7th Media Productions and ‘Kpians’, a horror flick for Mighty Jot Studios.
