A Place In The Stars is a riveting story of illicit drug trafficking, violence, turf wars and conscientious dilemmas. It is an account of one man’s choice between conscience and the pull to get rich or die trying.
Set in 2006 Nigeria, the movie tells the story of Kim Dakim (Gideon Okeke), a young lawyer with a case and a client that leaves him professionally conflicted. Kim is in possession of information that could save lives, if he could only pass it on. Faced with the deadly consequences of crossing the path of industry kingpins, including the toughest of them all, Diokpa Okonwo (Segun Arinze); and with millions to earn if he would only turn a blind eye, Kim battles conscience and professional responsibility as he determines which way to turn.
The premiere will be attended by the crème de le crème of the entertainment, corporate, media and movie industries. Jeremiah Gyang will give a live performance.
The movie will be available in cinemas nationwide from 14th November.
