Breathless, shot on location in the upscale Lekki area of Lagos, is a star-studded movie with Ezuronye starring as Ben (Okpodu’s biological son), Bimbo Manuel as Professor Okpodu, Uti Nwachukwu as Priye (adopted son), Brycee Bassey as Jenny, Bobby Michaels as Detective, and John Njamah as Kwame.
It brings to life the story of the murder of an asthmatic lady in the beach house of her boss (Prof. Okpodu), an incident that sets off a series of events, which blows the lid off dark and well hidden secrets of the Okpodu, his two feuding sons and their link to the murder victim.
The film was directed by Charles Uwagbai, who had previously directed Okoro The Prince, Black Sillhuoete and Drive.
Uwagbai described Breathless as a big budget project, the reason for which he opted for top-tier talents and equipment.
Of the story, he said: ‘The man is no longer married. The relationship between him and the biological son is strained, and the young man feels cheated that he has lost all including his mother.’
Uwagbai explained that though a few new faces, notably Brycee Bassey, were involved, he is sure many of them will be big stars within a short time.
