The film titled 'Blood Sisters' was shot in Lagos and directed by Biyi Bandele and 'Oloture' director Kenneth Gyang.
Starring Ini Dima-Okojie and Nancy Isime in lead roles, 'Blood Sisters' follows the story of two friends Sarah (Ini Dima-Okojie) and Kemi (Nancy Isime). Sarah is engaged to her dream man, Kola.
