It's already mid-week woohoo! Jumping straight into today's post.
AREA BOYS (The movie)
About The Film:
"LOVE, HATE, TRUST, RESENTMENT, UNITY, FAITHFULNESS, HUMILITY, SACRIFICE... WHAT IS THE TRUE VALUE OF FRIENDSHIP? Having grown up in a world where corruption and greed over-ride all else, life-long friends Bode and Obi decide to repent from their way of life when they encounter a near death experience following a botched scam. They cut their ties with megalomaniacal boss (Dele) and his domineering girlfriend (who has a soft spot for Bode) and form their own partnership with a view of leaving their corrupt world for good. Life as a 'good' citizen proves a difficult experience for the guys and they plan to do one more job, behind Dele's back, to raise the funds that would ease them into a lifestyle of Godliness. But their plans fall apart before it's began when against their better judgement, they work a scam on Dele's turf, the scam back-fires, and he finds out about it. The friends are then faced with a life or death situation as they search for an escape route whilst hiding from the clutches of Dele's henchmen. And as the sun fades on the bustling city of Lagos, Bode and Obi are put to test about the true value of their friendship with the ultimate question: How far would you go to save the life of your friend...? Set in the inner city of Lagos, AREA BOYS is a fast-paced coming of age drama about the loss of innocence, the advent of hope and the true value of friendship." ***Click here for link to the movie and trailer***
