Amina stumbles, falls and rises as a single mother but as more and more tragic incidences become a daily occurrence her state of mind becomes unstable. However, with the careful guidance of brilliant psychiatrist (Wil Johnson), Amina ultimately confronts her tormented past.
Amina received generally mixed to negative reviews, many critics criticized the casting of the film. NollywoodForever gave it a 45% rating stating "If they had got the casting right and decided that Amina was British this could be amaaaazing, but they didn't! So no I cannot recommend it! Why is the young Omotola about 15 has a very set British accent, her mother is also British and the dad is screaming 'Bombocalat'? How did she grow up to be Nigerian? On what planet does that happen? Then the grown up amina's mother has a Nigerian accent."
