The Set Up is a story of two young ladies – Chike and Grace – but mostly about Chike. Chike’s father was a killer in his time and after he passed she became a drug dealer.
It started off as an attempt to pay back money which she used to free her best friend turned sister, Grace, from a future of sexual slavery, then many years later they become so good at their game that they are targeted by the NDLEA.
Then enters madame. Madame, played by Tina Mba, swoops in and introduces the ladies to a new world – the world of the con. And somewhere along the way, the lines start to blur on exactly who is being conned.
This happens when a multi-million dollar fraud marriage scheme comes up and turns their game against them.
The Set Up is magnificently impressive as a Nollywood film.
