Meroestream and Nubian productions have confirmed the September 23rd theatrical release of their latest co-production, Ticket to Life.
Ticket to Life stars an ensemble cast including Sambasa Nzeribe (Elevator Baby), Linda Osifo (A Naija Christmas), Debby Emokpaire (High Horse), Tina Mba (Breaded Life), and Christian Ochiagha (Mr and Mrs. Right).
The drama was directed by Geshin Salvador who is the producer, writer and director of the 2021 film Tanwa Savage, and scripted by Miskeen Anav based on a story by Tomisin Ayoade.
The synopsis for Ticket to Life reads: after coming to Lagos from the village in search of greener pastures, Nafisat soon realizes that the grasses are not as green as they seem when discovering a haunting secret. She must then make a deal with an archenemy to preserve her only means of survival against another enemy.
A statement from the executive producer Olayinka Quadri: “We wanted to make a film that is true to the Nigerian reality instead of a Hollywood wannabe. It was important to find a very good script, cast brilliant actors who deliver 10/10 and give the project to a director who is passionate about storytelling. We think we nailed it with Ticket to Life.”
He added, “This film depicts the Nigerian reality so well, the actors bring something different to their previous work, it is funny and beautifully shot. The audience will come away talking about it and quoting the actors.”
