From the stables of Creative Unit Multimedia Studios comes a Charles Uwagbai Film starring Alex Usifo, Ufuoma Ejenobor and the late Sam Loco Efe amongst many others.

STORYLINE: It is the fifteenth century: 1400 A.D. By an inexplicable twist of fate, the destiny of a kingdom is altered. Oba Ozolua, during whose reign Benin kingdom regained her glory and expanded her frontiers, is caught up in the vortex of intrigues that intertwines the destinies of his first three sons. The eldest becomes crippled as a result of a play ground accident. This causes his claim to the exalted throne to be passed over. Enter Princes Arhuan and Osawe.Both were born on the same day. Actually, Arhuan was given birth to first. But, the chiefs did not announce his birth until many hours after the proclamation of the birth of Osawe by Oba Ozolua, their father.This, according to customs, makes Arhuan the younger and Osawe, the heir apparent.This slight creates enmity between the princes.Prince Osawe is crowned Oba of Benin, with the title of Oba Esigie, an adamant Prince Arhuan wants his stolen destiny restored.This set the stage for intrigues, sorcery and outright conflicts. Queen Idia marshals the Oba’s warriors. Arhuan joins battle against the Benin kingdom. In the ensuing conflicts, Prince Arhuan shows courage in the face of adversity.Queen Idia accomplishes her deepest burning desire. And, Oba Esigie goes on to become one of the greatest Obas of Benin Kingdom.

This is a story of destinies skewed by mysterious happenstances.This is a story of roaring, consuming ambitions.This is a story of audacious bravery.

MY TWO CENTS: In all honesty, I’m not really excited about this movie. I mean I wouldn’t be the first person to go to the cinema to watch this movie. I’d probably chill till it came out on DVD (but that’s just me). But then again I really like Ufuoma Ejenobor and another reason I’d watch it is in honor of the late Sam Loco. Not to mention the scene in the trailer where they banged a baby’s head in (yup… I want to see that). Fingers crossed. Hope it’s a great movie.

    Thanks to Mr two cent,for giving all of us something to chart about ,and I know he was only joking when he said ,that he will not go to the movies to see this beautiful. Job,the producers should bring this movie to the untied state ,every Edo person will rush to the movie theaters to see the movie,infact most africans and even the white people(every race) would love because of the history,

    my two kobo or what ever you call yourself, learn to appreciate good things for once in your life. If that is your own two cent to lend or a piece of your mind, I think it is better keep in your mind where it belongs. I wonder who can would tell our stories us, even the oyinbo man calls it “AFRICAN MAGIC”. Try save your little penny til the next 2years when DVDs will come. let those that value life go to the cinemas.this producer is out of here meeeeen! thumbs up to you. We can’t continue to do western stuff till we loose our heritage and the generationext would not have a clue what their history is like or where they come from. to be honest, we circle round same spot in this nation cos we have refused to take cogniesance of history and learn from the same mistakes we wallow in every time. Lets tell the stories, lets go back to our roots.
