Love story – Check.

Infidelity – Check.

Bribery and corruption – Check.

Witch doctor and juju rituals – Check.

Screaming mother-in-law – Check.

Armed robbers – Check.

Man bitch-slapping another man – Check.

Woman bitch-slapping man – Check.

Woman bitch-slapping woman – Check. (See “Festival of slaps” video clip below).

All in one movie – Check.
