Moses Inwang and Padita Agu have joined hands to produce “The Last Three digits”, incidentally directed by Moses. The movie stars the likes of Nonso Diobi, Dr SID, Padita Agu and features Bimbo Manuel, Rachel Oniga, AY, Ali Baba, Abiola Atanda (Madam Kofo), Moyo Lawal, Yemi Blaq, Kevin Ikeduba. The cinematographic feel was by Okey Oku and the movie was shot in Lagos and the UK.
The story revolves around Alex, who after a chance meeting with Audrey, receives her phone number… but his joy is short lived as the phone digits are incomplete. He begins to randomly input the remaining three digits hoping that one set would be Audrey’s. However, the dialling of the wrong set of digits sees him being caught in the den of a violent gang, where he escapes death by the whiskers.
He resumes work and discovers that the company was actually owned by Audrey’s father. His joy knows no bounds… but is once more short lived as Audrey is now engaged to Marvin. Can he come to terms with this new development staring in his face as he yearns for his love?… or can he put the disappointment behind and move on with his life?
Hmm… your guess is as good as mine… let’s watch the flick when it’s released… shall we
