O’ Africa! A Review

africa Changing one’s ideas of how others are perceived and finding out who you really are is what O’ Africa is about. Twin brothers, Micah and Izzie Grand are in the movie industry, constantly coming up with ideas for what to produce next. They’re very successful in their chosen profession. However, they do have their weaknesses.
Micah, who’s married and has two sons, is always looking for another woman to bed down. He needs to feel that he’s attractive and worth having. So he cheats constantly on his wife and lies to her and their two young sons regarding his absences. Izzie, on the other hand, is unsure of himself and his ability to craft the films that he and brother produce.
A trip to Africa changes their perspective on how they see themselves and also of other people. The story takes place back when silent pictures were still the number one, the nineteen twenties. Some gangsters have more or less threatened the men into making the movie. The idea is the telling of how African Americans came to be slaves. The tragic and horrific part of history that should never have happened.
Somehow, their viewpoint has changed. They understand that just because someone is different from you, doesn’t make them any less of a person. The Malwiki tribe allows them to use their location as part of the background for their new movie. Micah and Izzie realize that they are smart, creative and industrious. Erases the negative idea in their heads. Both brothers begin to discover new confidences in themselves, especially Izzie. Micah realizes especially once he returns to the States, that his family is more valuable and worth repenting of his infidelity.
They are forced to ad lib during the shooting of the movie, O’ Africa! Which in turns makes them better people. They gain knowledge from their experience.
I received this free book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
