Imagine a floating theatre stage in Makoko, the largest slum situated on water in Nigeria. Here, Mrs F. wants to unite women and perform the play called "Hear Word". She dreams that this performance will raise women out of oppression, convince them to speak up, and encourage them to connect—the women of Makoko and the women in her own life. Will she succeed or will patriarchy and religion kill her dream?
