It’s September 1960. Nigeria is on the verge of independence from British colonial rule. Northern Nigerian police detective, Dan Waziri, has been urgently dispatched south to solve the mysterious murder of a woman.  With local tensions high on the eve of independence, Waziri faces a race against time to crack the case before any more women are killed. With pressure mounting, detective Waziri is pulled into a game of cat and mouse as he and the killer try to outwit each other, leading to a climatic showdown all before the British flag is lowered and the Nigerian flag raised on Independence Day – October 1st.

Followed by a Q&A with director Kunle Afolayan.
