The weight of womanhood is more than any shelf can bear. Produced by Chuckwunonso Angel Dureke , Julie Dash, Nefertite Nguvu, Bride Price is a Afro-futurism colorful coming of age short story of a young Nigerian-American woman, named Uzoma Nwosu, who goes on a normal trip to her local African grocery store when a single turn down the wrong aisle propels her into a mystical traditional Igbo wedding.

Scene by scene, Uzoma 's character unravels as she goes on a personal journey to find her voice and value. “Teach her that she is not merely an object to be liked or disliked, she is also a subject who can like or dislike" -Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
