The Plot: Storyline of The Woman King

As was already established, the story of The Woman King centres on the Agojie, an all-female warrior corps tasked with guarding the West African nation of Dahomey. Over the course of the 17th century and into the 19th century, the Agojie defended the kingdom and engaged in combat.

The Oyo Empire kidnapped the women of the Dahomey kingdom, but the Agojie freed them. The King of Dahomey is so incensed by this deed that he declares war on the Oyo Empire. The film’s primary character, Nanisca, will be portrayed by the well-known Viola Davis.

She is responsible for enlisting more young women into the Agojie so they can defend their monarch. Women with a strong will and a desire to defend their people are among the new warriors.

Due to her bravery and contributions to the country, Nanisca eventually vies for the title of Woman King. The movie celebrates the courageous women who lived and made contributions to society.
