About Film

Julius is a broken, down-on-his-luck ex-­boxer, in search of redemption. Munachi is a pretty, bubbly young girl with a dark secret.
Their chance meeting on a park bench in Oxford Gardens one summer afternoon sets in motion an unlikely friendship and an uplifting journey through their respective fears; and through hope, faith and love; to a stoic acceptance of whatever life throws at them.

The upcoming film stars Ngoli Okafor, (2 time Golden Gloves, Heavyweight champion, top model and Hollywood Actor) Ngozi Thompson Igwebike, Savanah Roy.

The movie will also see the filmmaker's daughter D'Richy Obi-Emelonye, make her acting debut.
