 The role of Adanna also demonstrated how females are beginning to stand for their future by being assets not liabilities. Adanna in this movie worked with her father and also her uncle as a partner, not an object. She navigates everything from sexism and sexual harassment to the senseof duty and obligation towards familial and tribal communities. She experience many of the complexities that shape life forNigerian women. Her struggles do not revolve around securing a husband or having children but for self and Nation’s development.

Living in bondage avoided familiar tropes of African tribalism representation. It depicts tribalism in a subtle manner. It focused on how it can shape relationships while avoiding sensationalized violent ethnic conflicts, the Biafran war and Boko Haram. With this approach, Lionheart effectivelyshowcases Igbo culture and its intersections with Nigeria at large.
