The movie centres around two men, Bambino and Bawa, who become friendly after meeting in Lagos during a photography competition. As they explore the city, they grow to care deeply for one another. However, because of societal expectations regarding homosexuality, they are unable to express their desires.

On the themes and relevance of the movie, Apalowo stated, “The main themes of the movie is love, as it is a love story between two people, despite their sexual identities. The film is a reflection on love, identity, acceptance and the complexities of navigating life as an outsider in a society that often rejects those who are different.” The movie is produced by Damilola Orimogunje of Polymath pictures.
