Review

The movie shines light on human trafficking in Nigeria, mostly of children to be used as domestic help.

Kossi, an above-average brilliant boy is one of many children trafficked through the Nigerian borders from Togo. He ends up as a houseboy for the Martins. He dreams of a better life, but with barely any education, he knows his future is compromised.

The movie fast forwards to when he is now an adult, he relies on his natural abilities and talent to carve out a way for himself, soon discovering the art of counterfeit money printing and floating the most flawless counterfeit dollars this side of the world.

Now out on his own, he employs the services of a few friends and grows the operation substantially, landing him on the radar of a young determined agent at the EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) who will stop at nothing to bring him to justice.

Gabriel Afolayan has always been known to kill every role in any movie he is cast in and his performance in ‘Coming from Insanity’ is no different.
