The trailer for this movie is so heartbreaking and real…we can’t wait to watch the movie.

Directed by Imoh Umoren, “The Happyness Limited” stars Tope Tedela, Kiki Omeile, Gregory Ojefua, Kingsley Nwachukwu, Racheal Emem Isaac, Harry Dorgu, Duke Elvis, Seun Kentebe and more.

Synopsis:

The Happyness Limited is a film about a man Gregory Ojefua played by Tope Tedela who loses everything in a fire and is scarred. His badly burnt child needs a surgery and Gregory does all he can to raise money for her. He is seriously hampered as people will not hire him because he is deformed. He eventually finds work as a party mascot for children. Hoping this was a ray of sunlight but his life takes another turn when he falls in love with his prostitute neighbour Agnes (played by Kiki Omeili) and forms an unlikely bond with her daughter Mandu (Played by Miriam Kayode).

The Happyness Limited took 2 and a half years to make, from scripting to filming. The scripting process took multiple rewrites consistently over a year plus. The film had to be pushed back because of location problems but was eventually made in March 2016.

    I legit just cried. This is the first time I have seen a Nigerian film that was this emotional. Too many comedy not enough deep drama. THis really got me thinking….Definitely an AMVCA nomination for this film I can see it

    I’m just happy to see a Nigerian movie that isn’t about runz girls/sugar daddys. I’ll definitely be viewing.
