Plot of 'On Monday of Last Week':

“On Monday of Last Week” follows a Nigerian woman on her journey to self-realization. Kamara takes on a  job caring for Josh, the five-year old son of Tracy and Neil, an interracial couple living in an upscale urban home. 

Under Neil’s direction, Kamara settles into a routine of prepping Josh for an academic competition and feeding him the latest kids’ health craze. The noticeable absence of Josh’s mother, Tracy, and her occasional outbursts heard from her artist’s studio in the basement intrigue Kamara. 

Kamara’s growing curiosity is piqued when Tracy finally emerges from her studio one afternoon. The brief encounter causes Kamara to launch into an unexpected attraction, wanting nothing more than an excuse to see Tracy again.”
