On the noisy Ajayi Crowther Street in Lagos, neighbors gather to gossip, discuss noise complaints, and faithfully head to church each Sunday. But beneath the surface lies a hidden world. On Ajayi Crowther Street peels back the curtains on the lives of Reverend Akpoborie and his family, to reveal a world full of secrets and lies. His son, Godstime, is struggling to hide his sexuality from his parents while his daughter Keturah hides the truth of her pregnancy by her pastor boyfriend to preserve her and her family's image. But it is the Reverend himself who hides the darkest secret of them all, as his wondering eye lands on Kyauta, their young live-in maid.
