Yikes!!!…Blood in the lagoon?…Alright hold on a minute…it’s nothing to worry about. It’s only a movie written and produced by Jerry Padney and directed by Teco Benson. The flick stars Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Okey Uzoeshi, legendary filmmaker Eddie Ugbomah, Akeem Rahman, and Ufuoma Ejenobor.
Set in the slummy area of Lagos lagoon, it unveils the abject penury many children contend with on a daily basis. George Dibiya (Okey Uzoeshi) locks horns with life in this Government forsaken area as he strives to survive. Education has become an unreachable dream, a no go zone, let alone conceive its possibility.
He is locked within its borders and like the others, he has been sentenced to a life of depression and poverty. The death of his brother takes him beyond the borders of the slummy area as he thrusts forward to fulfill his brother’s dream. He meets Scarlet (Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde) and the turning point begins…
Hmm…can’t wait to see this flick…what do you think?
