May 27th is a Nollywood short film directed by Smart Edikan and funded by Dr Linda Iheme with settings shut in Nigeria and Canada. The movie  exposes the unraveled story of “rape” as suffered by women and men in local communities and inner cities with a focus on how this matter affects the grassroots where there is no proper media coverage on how to mitigate the mayhem.
