According to the synopsis, Vincent has a great wife and wonderful daughters… but there’s a problem. He’s always bringing up reasons to beat her up in-spite of Aniema’s efforts to be a good wife and mother. He alone knows what the problem is. He continues in the bashing spree, until one day… he takes it too far…lives are negatively affected, lessons are learnt the hard way… but hope does not abandon them…
Endangered reorientates the minds of folks on issues pertaining to domestic violence, and stamps the importance of the girl child in an era where the male child is given undue preference.
