Summary: "Alhaji has taken five wives; one dies, he divorced another and lives with the remaining three. This program travels to Nigeria to examine the impact of polygamy and divorce on the country's population demographics, focusing on a case study of one family to highlight trends and concerns. The connection between religious values and family planning becomes apparent in interviews with various people in the community. The program also visits a school for women who have been divorced or widowed and want to learn a skill or receive a basic education."--Container
