The movie’s producers, Anakle Films, refer to it as “Nigeria’s biggest-budget film to date,” with a budget that exceeds $1 million. The film’s narrative centres on Paul Edima, a former hitman for the Nigerian military and drug cartel who made a lasting impression by taking part in assassinations, coups, kidnappings, and narcotics operations.

The protagonist makes a dangerous bargain with his boss after receiving a harsh ultimatum: either kill a female journalist’s child, whom he once spared or lose his own life. In exchange for his life and the child’s safety, he hands over the fabled ledger known as “The Black Book,” which contains proof against Nigeria’s corrupt ruling class.

Edima is forced back into the world of violence after three decades of living a peaceful existence after his only son is murdered by a group of dishonest police officers from the infamous SARS squad. To hide the crimes perpetrated by a politician’s son, this horrible atrocity was committed.

According to Effiong, the film provides an interesting and fictional viewpoint on the complicated past of Nigeria. He claims that great storytelling knows no boundaries and that this African story is ready to resonate with audiences everywhere. The movie has top-notch actors and gorgeous scenery, which help to tell this Nigerian story in realistic detail.

In ending, Effiong recognises Nigeria’s great storytelling legacy and stresses the significance of using imaginative storytelling to tackle the harsh realities of military rule and corruption in the country’s history.

The Black Book” promises to be an enthralling film experience that illuminates a significant period in Nigeria’s history while also providing entertainment.
