A Brief Over view

In 1963, Tayo Ajayi sails to England from Nigeria to take up a scholarship at Oxford University. Amidst the dreaming spires, he discovers a generation high on visions of a new and better world. Everywhere is ablaze with change: independence movements at home, the Civil Rights movement across the Atlantic, and in Europe, tremors of countercultural and sexual revolutions.
It is then that Tayo meets Vanessa Richardson, the beautiful daughter of an ex-colonial officer.
In Dependence is Tayo and Vanessa's story of a brave but bittersweet love affair. Spanning three continents and four turbulent decades, it is the story of two people struggling to find themselves and each other - a story of passion and idealism, courage and betrayal, and the universal desire to fall, madly, deeply, in love.
