When troubled Nigerian-American teenager Eze (Antonio J. Bell) is sent away to his mother's native Nigeria against his will, he quickly finds himself entangled in a dangerous web of scams and corruption, with his magnetic con-artist cousin Pius (Chinaza Uche) as his guide. This electric debut feature from director/writer Faraday Okoro seamlessly blends thrilling sequences of elaborate deception and dramatic tension with surprising moments of humor, offering a snapshot of a world not often seen on film and introducing the reality behind all-too-familiar junk-mail scams. Okoro's film, anchored by uniformly strong performances, breathes cinematic life into characters that have previously only lurked in the shadows of the American imagination. Official Selection, 2018 Tribeca Film Festival.

In English and Ibo with English subtitles

The New African Film Festival runs March 7 — 17. Full schedule:
