At a time when honesty is thrown to the dust, some remnants still stands to uphold what is right. This is the story of a man highlighting the core values of a true Nigerian via honesty, high principles, industry, dynamism, frankness and truthfulness. The film teaches the youths who are the future leaders of tomorrow to exemplify the ideal Nigerian, who will continue to express these core values no matter the çircumstances. I am passionate in using stories to bring positive behavior change which I strongly believe this film will inspire generation to come.
