Tekena and Olotu sail to the Americas for a shot at a better life, Boma and Degbe escape the military after a protest gone wrong, and Abbey and Oyinbraekemi, ill-fated lovers, try to escape destiny. The film promises a gripping on-sea survival drama with numerous twists and turns.

“In developing countries like Nigeria, there’s immense potential across industries, and it’s crucial for Africans to authentically share our stories—raw, unfiltered, showcasing both successes and challenges. Our experiences are uniquely ours, and we must tell them with excellence, professionalism, honesty, and precision, as no one else can fully understand or convey them better than we can.” – Charles Okpaleke, Executive Producer
