Folarin (Ozzy Agu) is a Lagos based investment banker with something to hide. Plagued by an alcohol problem and intermittent panic attacks, his life is turned upside down when his ethics are compromised over a controversial rail construction project. As his relationship with his glamourous society wife Jumoke (Segilola Ogidan) unravels he finds himself sinking deeper into an illegal high stakes business deal. When his actions lead to the death of a colleague in an environment where corruption is the name of the game, he is plunged further into crisis facing pressure on all fronts.

Narrated with suspense and intrigue, Over the Bridge is a rare treat from Nigeria, depicting the west African metropolis, Lagos as never seen before on the big screen. A Production by The Garden Theatre. (c) Nadia Denton
