It is a captivating, turbulent and thrilling journey into the love affair of Ejikeme (Mawuli Gavor) and Lola (Beverly Naya). Their paths cross when Ejikeme, an investment banker comes home from the United States to invest. It is love at first sight for them and as they embark on a journey of discovering this new love, they must contend with the sinister motives of Ejikeme’s mother, who is planning a marriage between him and the only daughter of Otunba Ayodeji, a political juggernaut. Ayodeji, in fact, is considering Ejikeme’s father as his running mate for the Presidency. His mother’s actions create a rift between Ejikeme and Lola that puts their families on a deadly collision course.Actors Beverly Naya, Mawuli Gavor and Joke Silva are in France for the premiere.

The movie captures the excitement and vibrancy of everyday life in Lagos and reflects the complexity of life in Lagos, a dynamic city where anything is possible in two weeks.

“Nigerian filmmaker Kathryn Fasegha’s sophomore feature is one of those great surprises that remind us why we love movies. Through the simple premise of two families coming to terms to decide their future and legacy, focusing on the romantic bridge between the youngsters, the director conceives a heart-warming, enchanted, funny and perceptive look at family values, faith, integrity, pure love and capital interests.”
