Inside Out S2 | Stream from 7 Oct
Ghana’s gripping drama Inside Out is back for a second season after an explosive first season that saw Soraya (Bless Fortune) battle not one, but two strong families to clear her mother’s identity and keep her out of jail.
With the return of her sworn enemy, Maafio (played by Roselyn Ngissah), who rises from the dead to claim her vengeance in this new season, Soraya’s life is about to become even more complicated. To make matters worse, Maafio makes an alliance with Lucia (played by Pascaline Edwards), her crime accomplice, and the woman who orchestrated Soraya’s mother’s death in prison.
Inside Out is directed by Pascal Amanfo (Cartel: The Genesis) and stars multi-award-winning actress Akorfa Edjeani (Azali, Aloe Vera), Edinam Atatsi (Aloe Vera), Jackie Ankrah, and Jeffrey Nortey, and is based on the South African serial The Housekeepers.
