In the film, directed by one of Nigeria’s leading female directors, Patience Oghre, news about a boxing competition with a cash prize of N1 billion ($3 million) hits town and sends a group of people into a hilarious frenzy, after which they devise mischievous means to participate, with firm eyes on the prize monies. The clumsy boxer they choose and the crazy characters they meet along the way, however, result in a myriad of mayhem and madness.
