Three friends–Uzoma, Segun, and Baba–are biding their time in their hometown of Lagos, Nigeria, before heading off to university. They have dreams of being artists–Uzoma wants to be a painter, while Segun longs to go to New York. During their break, they meet a radical professor who is writing a book on Nigerian history. Inspired by the professor’s work, Baba decides to make a film, defying his parents’ wishes for him to study accounting. Through the film, the three friends explore Nigerian culture, ethnic stereotypes, and political views through a humorous lens. Discussion with director Abba Makama
