    • Synopsis
    • A coming of age a story about 3 young boys from Nigeria's major ethnic groups on an adventure to make a short film inspired by the history of Nigeria.

      Three friends (Uzoma, Segun & Baba) just graduated from secondary school and are on a long break before they all go to university. Beside the typical pre coming of age mischief one usually indulges in, the boys occasionally visit a radical university professor who is writing a book about the history of Nigeria titled “Green White Green.” They are intrigued by his unconventional witty style of story telling.

      Incidentally Baba defies his rich parents wish of studying accounting abroad and decides he wants to become a filmmaker and make a movie inspired by professors book.

      Uzoma (Baba’s best friend) on the other hand is from a poor background. He’s a talented painter trying to make a name for himself. With the weight of the world on his shoulder he decides to help his best friend achieve his filmmaking dream.

      Segun the western pop culture loving Nigerian kid who’s fed up with the 3rd world and has dreams of joining his older brother in New York. He’s indifferent about Baba’s film project but tags along because he has nothing better to do.

      The three boys and Uzoma’s girlfriend (Maggi) embark on rollercoaster ride that will eventually lead them towards their individual path to self discovery.
