‘Fifty’ – Movie starring Omoni Oboli, Ireti Doyle, Nse Ikpe-Etim & Dakore Egbuson-Akande

This is one movie we will be keeping an eye out for!

Ireti Doyle, Omoni Oboli, Dakore Egbuson-Akande and Nse Ikpe-Etim star in ‘Fifty’ from EbonyLife Films – a movie that pushes the boundaries to uncover the lives of Lagos’ contemporary and glamorous upper class, sharing the world of four women as they rise above adversity to stand as they truly are; modern African women.

 

Plot:

FIFTY captures a few pivotal days in the lives of four Nigeria women at the pinnacle of their careers. Meet Tola, Elizabeth, Maria and Kate four friends forced at midlife to take inventory of their personal lives, while juggling careers and family against the sprawling backdrops of the upper middle-class neighbourhoods of Ikoyi and Victoria Island in Lagos. They live and work in the resurgent, ever-bustling, 24-hour megacity of Lagos, the commercial capital of Africa’s biggest and most vibrant economy.

 

Tola is a reality TV star whose marriage to lawyer Kunle never stood a chance thanks to an invidious family secret. Elizabeth is a celebrated obstetrician whose penchant for younger men has estranged her from her daughter. Forty-nine year-old Maria has an affair with a married man that results in an unexpected pregnancy and Kate’s battle with a life-threatening illness has plunged her into religious obsession.
