Half Open Lid


HALF-OPEN LID is the gripping story of Ameze, a fast-growing town caught in a tense tussle between the seductive allure of modernism and the old ways of life. As commerce and industries bloomed, newcomers increased, bringing strange new modes of dressing and behaviour, which threatened to obliterate the culture and traditions of the people. Worried about the growing acceptance of the alien culture, especially among the younger generation, Obieze summoned all heads of families to a meeting to seek a solution to the problem.

As the new culture pitted the youths against the older generation, one girl took matters into her own hands in a bid to balance the odds against women in a male-dominated society where women were relegated to the background. While the town grapples with the knotty dilemma of restoring the glory of its traditions and customs and endearing them to the younger generation, things take a turn for the worse when the Crown Prince attempts to burn down the ancient throne of Ameze, and two girls announce their intention to marry each other.
