Trapped in oblivion, a story set in Africa, is the story of Nnenna and Kunle, two high school students who against all odds and societal norms, fall in love. Their quest to understand and discover their identity through love, leads them to different society vices like teen pregnancy, child molestation, domestic abuse, rape, cyber bullying, suicide, HIV/AIDS and the typical African parental control / judgment.
Nnenna, who started her journey of self discovery at the age of 13, is ignorant of all the societal vices stated above and goes on a quest to understand by seeking her mum’s knowledge. She meets a brick wall in her mum, who represents an average African mum that believes, indulging in sex education with your child brings about negative effect in the child. Nnenna then resorts to getting her information from her peers in school.
Her mum’s lack of support, increases her desire to be with Kunle, who feels exactly the same way she does, but falls prey to peer pressure that creates a domino effect on everyone associated with himself and Nnenna.
The misinformation Nnenna receives on the other hand, and her mum’s constant negativity through nagging and threats, pushes her on a journey of self discovery, enlightenment and ultimately lifetime full of regrets’ but, self driven purpose to empower the society on the need to give sex education to the family unit.
