Rafi and Ami’s younger sister, Bili, is coming round for dinner — and for the first time, she’s bringing her boyfriend, Brian. But then, without any warning, their mother Wura arrives. The evening takes a turn that throws up old and new questions, not least: Why doesn’t Wura know that Brian even exists?

Hoard is the story of one close-knit Nigerian family and old hurts that resurface over the course of one evening.
