Set in Lagos, “Over the Bridge” follows the life of Folarin (Ozzy Agu) an investment banker with secrets, plagued by an alcohol problem and intermittent panic attacks. His life is turned upside down when his ethics are compromised over a controversial rail construction project.
In this gripping, redemptive tale we see a man teetering over the edge as he grapples with his conscience.
Directed by Tolulope Ajayi, written and produced by Tosin Otudeko, and co-produced by Bose Oshin. Tolu takes a reflective, emotive approach in this feature resulting in a film which is relatable and more accessible to international audiences than the usual Nollywood fare.
Visually, audiences are treated to glimpses of Lagos life as rarely seen on the big screen. Cinematographer KC Obiajulu exceeds himself with accomplished artistic flourishes that give the film a distinct character.
Lead actor Ozzy Agu delivers a compelling performance as a man struggling with his inner demons, unable to find a way out, laying corporate masculinity bare. Segilola Ogidan plays his long-suffering society wife Jumoke with grace and fortitude.
Over the Bridge also features Nollywood stalwarts Joke Silva and Deyemi Okanlawon and would premiere on the 18th of October in cinemas across the nation.
