Produced by Oge Obasi and directed by Michael Omonua, Abba T. Makama, CJ 'Fiery' Obasi, the anthology film tackles juju in contemporary Lagos through three stories.

In 'Love Potion' by Omonua, an unmarried woman agrees to use juju to find herself an ideal mate. In 'Yam' by Makama, consequences arise when a street urchin picks up seemingly random money from the roadside.

In 'Suffer the Witch', by C.J. "Fiery" Obasi, love and friendship turns into obsession, when a young college woman attracts her crush's interest.
