In some parts of Africa, having a co-wife is a part of tradition. It is a cultural thing that many women have had to adapt to. Polygamy is common in other parts of the world as well. The freedom to leave such a situation is not an option for many women. They must live with it because there are no laws to prohibit it.
Fortunately, we live in America where polygamy is a crime. The women depicted in this film are unaware that they have a choice. And that my friends is reason number two. The freedom to be in a monogamous or polygamous society. The women make their choice at the end of the movie. Enjoy!
