Lomba, a young journalist, languishes in prison. His world has slowly crumbled. While the guards sleep, he begins to write. His story spirals backwards in time, telling the tale of the residents of Poverty Street, Lagos. We hear of resistance leader Joshua, in love with a former pupil turned prostitute, of Nancy, who finds solace covering walls with graffiti, and of Janice, forced to marry a General.

Through seven interconnected narratives, Habila provides a strikingly cinematic and hallucinatory account of the difficulties of life under dictatorship in Nigeria. Waiting for an Angel captures the stubborn hope amidst despair of the dark days of Nigeria’s recent past, documenting a period we forget at our peril.
