Top Ghollywood actress, Nadia Buari teamed up with veteran Nollywood stars like Olu Jacobs, Bimbo Manuel, Tina Mba, Nobert Young, Akin Lewis and other in making sure that new movie, 'Heroes and Zeroes' becomes a blockbusting film in Nollywood.
Cast and crew worked on the movie in partnership with entertainment powerhouse, Koga Entertainment as they put up sterling performances in the flick. At the technical end, Niji Akanni did not fail to add his midas touch in directing the movie which was also written by him.
Heroes and Zeroes centres on a true story. It 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 dollar-soaked 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.
The movie will be in cinemas across the nation from Friday, September 7, 2012.
