A Tale of Dreamers

A Tale of Dreamers: 

LOGLINE: The lives of four Yoruba youths meet at a tragic crossroads in this riveting thriller of desperate struggles to escape poverty and social stagnation.  Their struggles, sometimes funny, other times pathetic but always poignant, are shaped by both traditional Yoruba culture and the realities of a failing modern state called Nigeria.

SYNOPSIS: A rainy night at an inner-city police station in Lagos promises to be idle and restful for the night-duty squad. That promise evaporates in the instant that a young man walks in, covered in blood but without any visible injuries. The officers press their ghoulish visitor into writing a Statement of his journey into what was obviously a recent bloody encounter.  In careful details and heartfelt candor, the young man, Folabi Omokehinde Olomitutu, narrates a complex but highly fascinating tale of deep filial love and true friendship; of human exploitation and incredible courage; of a ‘rebellious’ modern mentality that challenges an indigenous cultural mindset which kills dreams and limits human ambitions; and of people who sink without a fight and those who tenaciously reshape their own lives.

Introduction:
Hi. My name is Muyiwa Ogunmefun, popularly known as Adiitu. Just a few years ago, I was a man with no sense of direction to the point that I became homeless. Yes, I was once homeless and spent several nights at the Santa Monica beach where I used the Marriot hotel pool towels as blankets. This is not something that I am ashamed to admit but a phase of life that has served as my testimony and my motivation to others. To the Glory of God, I am honored and grateful to address myself as a man with not just dreams but also visions, a man of integrity, high standard, and high self-worth, thanks to God who led my path to this life-changing idea that we are exhibiting in this film. #ATaleofDreamers

How It All Started - Inspiration Struck
Inspiration struck in 2019 when I went to Nigeria and in the four weeks of my visit, I observed the wastage of the abilities and the potentials of many youths of Nigeria. Also, I recently listening to an audio recording of Pastor Fowowe, one of the prominent motivational speakers in Nigeria, and in the recording, Pastor Fowowe painfully spoke about the physical and the emotional neglect and abuse of a lot of children in Nigeria. Mind you, these children are the adults and the leaders of tomorrow. These and many more personal experiences is why I have decided to embark on this project.  #ATaleofDreamers

Gratitude:   
For starters, I would like to convey my deepest gratitude to everyone who supported my first campaign either through donations or by sharing my cause with others. I assure you that your donations are part of the funds used in making sure that A Tale of Dreamers is written by one of the best script writers in the industry. And as one of the millions of Nigerian Youths who dream of a better future for themselves and the nation, thank you for believing in my vision.

A Tale of Dreamers is a story that informs, enlightens and creates awareness of a concept that could positively impact our lives individually and as a nation. It is written by myself and scripted by the multi-award-winning writer and director, Niji Akanni who is the writer of the multi-award-winning movie “Awamatu”, and also the writer of the mega movie “Akanni” directed by the legend Tunde Kelani.

Myself and Mr. Niji Akanni have lent our voices to write this unique story that will not only entertain the eyes but also inform the mind, and I am glad to inform you that we now have a classic script which we will need your assistance to breathe into life.    #ATaleofDreamers

#EndSars #EndPoliceBrutality #ReformTheNigerianPolice
The timing would not have been better. This project comes in the wake of a massacre that recently made headlines not only within Nigeria but the world at large. The youth of Nigeria recently came together in one voice to peacefully protest police brutality which happens daily, and to ask the government to reform the Nigerian Police force. Three days into the protest, the Nigerian Armies invaded the peaceful protest arena and sporadically shot at the protesters, killing several innocent youths who were in fact holding the national flag of Nigeria.    #ATaleofDreamers


Speaking up is challenging but we must. We must use our individual and collective voices to keep speaking up until there is a visible change in the land: a change where an average person can afford to feed his or her family, a change of job opportunities for the citizens, a change of sound education, a change whereby when people travel abroad, it is not because they are escaping from the hardships in their father’s land.  #ATaleofDreamers
