Makes No Difference Who You Are, Believe
From Ilorin, Nigeria, it is lights, cameras and action as In His Steps Mag excitedly prepares for the digital release of their short film, DAMAGED ECHO, March 21, 2016 @ inhistepsmag.org.
DAMAGED ECHO focuses on a young couple, Michael and Raquel. Their romantic relationship is under fire when Michael stumbles upon a very private letter written by Raquel. The letter and other surrounding circumstances all point to the shocking and heart breaking fact that Raquel is unfaithful and cheating on Michael. Can a love once trusting and true now be ruined? Can all be lost or are things really as apparent as they seem?
DAMAGED ECHO is an intense mildly psychological drama with an inspiring message that impacts yet encourages viewers to trust, love and believe, again. It is written and directed by Adebayo Okeowo, publisher of In His Steps Mag and a very forward-thinking young human rights attorney.
Okeowo explains, “My pursuit is to be all God desires me to be, yet I still find it hard to believe that this is our third short film. Our first was ‘Rhythms of Grace’ followed by sophomore project ‘He Promised.’ We were hyped and very thankful that ‘Rhythms of Grace’ earned a commendation in the 2013 International Short Film Competition sponsored by Afrinolly which got our short film and brand in front of 4 million viewers.”
