In the Instagram post, Bolanle Austen-Peters gave the synopsis of ‘Collision Course’ written by James Amuta.
“This movie means a lot to all of us. It won Best Movie, West Africa, for a reason. The actors nailed it and the story is well written by James Amuta.
“Collision Course is a heart-thumping story told in 24 hours about the lives of a law enforcement agent and an aspiring musician. It explores the seedy underbelly of rogue law enforcement officers and the painful and atrocious results of their actions as they collide head-on with the struggling musician and the conflicted member of the police force.”
“Collision Course is a race against time in a haze of palpable tension; it is a powder keg tethering on the brink of imminent combustion,” she added.
The Bolanle Austen-Peters Production stars Kelechi Udegbe, Daniel Etim Effiong, Chioma Chukwuka Akpotha, Ade Laoye, Kenneth Okolie, Bimbo Manuel, Gregory Ojefua, Bamike Olawunmi-Adenibuyan (BamBam), Kalu Ikeagwu, and Nobert Young.
