Breath of Life’, a movie written and directed by Bodunrin Sasore, is set for release on Prime Video, the streaming platform, on December 15.


‘Breath of Life’ delves into the transformative journey of Timi, a wealthy man grappling with the depths of grief and despair following a tragic loss.

When Timi’s path intersects with Elijah, a humble young man who becomes his housekeeper, their unexpected encounter ignites a transformation.

Through Elijah’s kindness and compassion, Timi embarks on a journey to rediscover the joy of living and unravelling the true purpose of his wealth.


The movie projects the themes of the human spirit, empathy, compassion, and the belief in the goodness of humanity.

Speaking at a press conference last Thursday, Sasore disclosed that the movie was inspired by his desire to see films about “father to son, employer to employee relationships thrive in Nollywood”.

Sasore said the movie also highlights the importance of keeping a family bond.

“We discovered that we do not have male relationship movies produced in the country. Considering we have one of romance, male and female. So, we do not have father and son, employer-employee. So, that was where the idea came from,” he said.

“I talk to my cousins and people abroad, and we discuss about raising children. That is one thing in the Nigerian community and family. So, the interesting thing is the strong informal relationships.

On his part, Wale Ojo, the lead cast, described his role in ‘Breath of Life’ as complex due to the emotions involved.

The British-Nigerian actor said Timi’s unbelief in God and the situation around him were all part of God’s plan for his life.


He said Elijah was the angel God sent to transform Timi’s life.

‘Breath of Life’ was produced by Eku Edewor.

The upcoming movie also features Genoveva Umeh, Sambasa Nzeribe, Tina Mba, Chimezie Imo, Sam Dede, Demola Adedoyin, Bimbo Manuel, and Ashionye Michelle Racah.

‘Breath of Life’ screened at the 12th Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) in Lagos.
