One of the things that first attracted me to the series was the fly on the wall/found footage approach the creators took. It’s the first time I’ve seen anything of the sorts in Nollywood. I hope they can find a way to continue using it for the duration of the series.
One Chance follows the story of a group of friends who board a late night bus home only to discover that they have fallen victims to a late night robbery expedition.
The episode starts with three friends standing by a roadside in the Lagos metropolis waiting for a bus to take them to their destination. It seems like one of them just got a new phone, so he’s trying out its functions (especially the camera) when a bus arrives. They board and for some reason, he keeps the phone’s camera running. A lot of the things you would expect in the average Lagos bus happens in this one too: a rude conductor, some random guy selling a random product which he claims can solve all your problems, and so on.
Directed by James Omokwe and Ethan Okwara, the series stars Akah Nnani and Bella Rose Okojie.
All in all, it’s just one episode, so there’s not much material to judge yet, but it does come across as a series I’ll want to (binge) watch.
I think I’ve given away too much already, so I’ll just let you sit back and enjoy the seven-minute clip. Feel free to leave your thoughts on the episode in the comment section below.
