Half of a Yellow Sun is a 2013 Nigerian historical drama film directed by Biyi Bandele, packaged on DVD.
From the producers of The Constant Gardener and The Last King of Scotland, Half of a Yellow Sun is based on the best selling novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and weaves together the lives of four people swept up in the turbulence of war.
When civil war breaks out in Nigeria in the late 1960s, political lines are drawn and families are forced to scatter. Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Olanna (Thandie Newton) find themselves in the middle of an escalating conflict that drives them from their university-town home and threatens Olanna’s relationship with her sister, Kainene (Anika Noni Rose).
As the war escalates, and the situation in the newly established Biafra becomes increasingly hopeless, Odenigbo, Olanna and their family struggle in the face of hardships of every kind – yet still find a way to survive.
