After months of what seemed to be an unending wait, ‘Heroes and Zeros’ – the movie which features veteran acts Olu Jacobs, Bimbo Manuel and Ghanian beauty Nadia Buhari is set to premiere on Friday, August 31, 2012.
The premiere, producers say, will have A-list actors and actresses, top entertainment personalities and highly placed personalities in attendance
‘Heroes and Zeros’ which also features the likes of Gabriel Afolayan, Funso Adeolu, Nobert Young, Tina Mba and Akin Lewis is an emotive movie that characterizes the shady plots of the Nigerian soft sell papers often making references to Nollywood
Heroes and Zeros tells the story of the destructive pursuance of Tonia (Nadia Buari) by Amos Fele (Bimbo Manuel). Amos Fele was a wealthy celebrity director in the Nigerian film industry. Now he lives in a ramshackle flat, doing occasional low-paying TV commercials for nameless products. He’s a daily comic relief on the local soccer practice pitch: because though he’s already 45 years old, he nurses a new, insane dream of making it into the world of international soccer! His joyless marriage to Tinuke (Tina Mba), a junior bank worker, is crumbling fast, especially after the death of their only child.
A boost to his sagging spirit comes when a big-budget French-Nigerian film project appoints him as director. Suddenly, the press begins to (re)celebrate him. Top actors and producers begin to call him up. To his wife’s distress, Fele also quickly re-establishes his wane reputation as a first-class womanizer.
Fele becomes obsessed with Tonia, a ravishing beauty and lead actress of the Nigerian-French film project. Ignoring the warnings of his best friend, Nnamdi (Norbert Young), a psychology professor, Fele pursues his obsession with Tonia to its tragic conclusion.
‘Heroes and Zeros’ is produced by Koga Studios and directed by award winning director, Niji Akanni. Akanni has written many award-winning including Dangerous Twins, Playing Games, Saving Alero and Narrow Path.
The movie will be in cinemas across the nation from Friday, September 7, 2012.
