Viola Davis dazzles as General Nanisca, the formidable leader of the Agojie warriors, an all-female army in the West African Kingdom of Dahomey in the 1820s.
When faced with new enemies, she must train a new generation of warriors to be fiercer than ever before. Gina Prince-Bythwood (Love & Basketball) brings a powerful twist to the warrior epic with a female-led army battling against the Oyo Empire; expect incredible action sequences and great performances from a committed cast including Lashana Lynch (No Time to Die), Shelia Atim and John Boyega.
