In Half of A Yellow Sun, Olanna (Thandie Newton) and Kainene (Anika Noni Rose) are twins who come from a wealthy family in Nigeria. Against the backdrop of the 1960s, the women return from getting an expensive, English education to their home city, and make very different choices. 

Before the film, enjoy the music of Les Nubians + DJ Eddie Ed.
