COMING SOON: The Assassin’s Practice
Starring Justus Esiri, Kate Henshaw, and Eve Pearson amongst others, “The Assassin’s Practice” is a movie written, produced, and directed by Andrew Ukoku.
Failed stock investor, EVIANO ESIRI (Justus Esiri), hires an Assassin (Eve Pearson), to take his life and make it look like a botched robbery so his family would live off his life insurance. As part of his elaborate plan, he organises an impromptu holiday for his wife, SANDRA (Kate Henshaw) and daughter, TRACY (Sarah Akokhia), to protect them from witnessing the assassination. With no love lost between Sandra and Tracy, neither wants the holiday! He insists
On the day, the birth-abandoned daughter of his wife, EFUA (Daphne Akatugba), shows up to request money they no longer have. His frustration turns into frenzy as he watches the clock tick towards the coming of the Assassin. Agreeing to give whatever cash they have left just to get his family out of the house would have been at the nick of time; Only two opportunist ROBBERS (David Nnaji and Uche Monye) turn up and would not leave or let anyone leave without getting the money they expect to find.
The Robbers’ hope very quickly degenerates into confused agitation as it becomes clear that Eviano has a death wish they would rather not satisfy. They must leave with nothing; or kill his family – if only to satisfy their brewing anger! Their reign of terror is however brought to an abrupt end with the entrance of the Assassin, JACQUELINE.
Jacqueline is a psychotic university-drop-out-assassin, whose desire of becoming a psychotherapist can only be fulfilled on her victims. One hour is all her session would last. Within the hour she would take everyone through a gruelling question and answer session; at the end of which everyone must die. She sets the timer. An ominous silence pervades the air. As the hour ticks away slowly, Eviano knows he must do everything to protect his family before the hour is up.
The movie is set to premiere on February 22, 2013!
