The movie, according to a statement by the filmmaker on Wednesday, has been scheduled for an October 7 premiere.

‘Gbege’ is a story of a troubled man, whose father died while he was serving life imprisonment.

All he wants is a chance to be released from prison to perform his father’s burial rite, but the law is no respecter of tradition.
