African Magic films in collaborations with Golden Effects Pictures have released the official poster and synopsis for an upcoming Kunle Afolayan movie titled "Roti."

The movie tells the story of how, years after a couple loses their son called Roti to a brief illness, the wife sees a boy called Juwon who is an exact replica of her dead son.

After discovering that Juwon is not a reincarnation of Roti, she is washed anew by grief and soon descends into depression and consequent hysteria.
