'My two wives' is drama series on KTN TV which is basically based on African traditions. The drama is based on one man, Zachary, whose real name is Eddy Peter. Zac struggles to cope up with his two wives after he was forced to inherit one from his late brother.
One of Zac's wife is Damaris. Her husband, Alphonse, was Zac's elder brother who died of a heart attack. His abrupt death was the genesis of the problems Zac is facing after he was forced by the traditions to inherit Damaris, something his first wife, Toni, has been unsuccessfully opposing.
Damaris moved to the city with her husband to join the other co-wife but she did not leave behind the village in her.
