Set in Lagos, the movie depicts the life of a young, timid graduate desperate to overcome his financial woes. The protagonist Arinze played by upcoming talent Seun Ajayi meets ambitious and beautiful Omosigho (Beverly Naya) by chance and it sets off a chain of events that force him to explore a “get rich quick” idea.
Director of the film Mildred Okwo, says “This film is funny but it also shows the viewer how hard it is to make a decent living in our country. Our brand of comedy is conscientious. We want you to laugh, love and above all learn.”
