“Eyimofe” meaning “this is my desire”, plunges viewers into the depth of the issue of Migration in our world today.
With a beautiful cinematographic display, the movie wonderfully tells the story of two Lagosians who crave for what they believe will be a better life in Europe, from a new perspective, revealing the migrants’ endless pursuit for greener pastures and the reality they met at the end.
