The Clinic

Dipo Baruwa-Etti

When a passionate activist, Wunmi, is invited into a middle-class Black family’s home, a fire is lit.

The family members have always seen themselves as pillars of society: they are charity workers, therapists and politicians. But as they begin to realise what Wunmi really represents, their certainty begins to crumble, the tension rises and a suffocating ash starts to fill the air.
