″THE PEOPLE’S STORY″ is a TV series that reveals the veritable ideals in a Cameroonian society and how the people live with it. It focuses on the travails of twin Cameroonian girls who are separated at birth, following their mother’s death. The babies are forcibly separated from each other because their parents are not permitted to be together owing to their different cultural backgrounds.
″THE PEOPLE’S STORY″ highlights cultural diversity as a barrier to matrimony, which is true of Cameroon in the days of yore, and also a practice which is common in certain parts of the country in recent times.
In many villages across Cameroon, people are expected to marry or have relationships only with persons whom they share a similar cultural heritage with. Contravening this belief might lead to grave consequences – the evidence of this is the separation of the twin girls, whom under normal circumstances should bond in sisterly love.
Following the disunion of the twins, they are both adopted by two different families, with each of the children growing up not knowing the deep reality of their existence. They grow up in separate worlds, without knowing they are twins, or that they are not the biological children of their current families.
The story behind this TV series is a pure phenomenon in Cameroon, and it explores enthralling themes such as cultural influence, deceit, separation and family deprivation. ″THE PEOPLE’S STORY″ has eight episodes, shot in different cities across Cameroon, and has a blend of both English and French cast.
