In "Tribunal", “Jimi Disu, a man in his fifties, is one of the bright- minded lawyers who co-establish a leading law firm in Lagos many years ago.
However, he lost his sense of direction and strength after being hit by a series of personal challenges that question his resolve as a man.
He becomes a ‘charge and bail’ lawyer with no further ambition. Approached by a young, enthusiastic, fresh law school graduate, Tanimowo (who adores him for the stature of his legendary pedigree as a lawyer), to defend her friend, an albino, who has been unfairly relieved of his duties at work, Jimi Disu is presented a chance to battle his old law firm.

These films will make a 2017 cinema release, screen at festivals, before making their debut on Africa Magic channels.
