Synopsis

Documentary filmmaker Michael Lebor follows congenial, entertainer, Buddy Munro, as he leaves Britain to try his luck in “Nollywood” Nigeria, the second biggest producer of movies in the world. Within moments of arriving, Buddy is welcomed by a vibrant film community with open arms and warm smiles, and through a series of serendipitous events becomes a celebrity within ten days. Buddy’s extraordinary outgoing personality conceals a childhood tragedy yet, as he embraces Nigerian culture, leaving laughter and bemusement in his wake, he achieves more in one week than he had done in his entire career.
