Their lives collide when Ejikeme, an investment banker comes home from the United States to invest in Nigeria. It is love at first sight and as they embark on a journey of discovering this new love, they have to contend with the political ambitions of Ejikeme’s mother who is planning a marriage between him and the only daughter of Otunba Ayodeji, a political juggernaut who is considering Ejikeme’s father as his running mate for the Nigerian Presidency. His mother’s actions create a rift between Ejikeme and Lola that puts their families on a deadly collision course.
The movie was first screened at the annual Cannes International Festival on Friday the 17th of May 2019 in Cannes France.
