Director
Adeyemi Michael

Sodiq dreamed of going to University and becoming a doctor in 2008. Fast-forward 5 years: he is on trial for murder. Director Adeyemi formed a unique bond with Sodiq; they set up a football team on their council estate together, and made a film in 2008 celebrating Sodiq’s dream of becoming a doctor, stating at the time that he didn’t want to end up in jail. The victim Sylvester also had dreams of becoming an athlete; it appears he and Sodiq were leading a double life. Director Adeyemi goes in search for what the turning point was, for a young man who once had the ambitions to become a doctor.
