A tale of love, lust and obsession, the movie which will be distributed by TRINO Motion Pictures will debut in cinemas on September 21, 2018.
The movie explores the cause and effect of relationships, mental health and the real versus the surreal world, as it tells the story of Richard Okezie, who decides to leave Sylvia, his lifelong imaginary friend and lover for Gbemi an actual human being.
“Sylvia” stars Chris Attoh as Richard, who has always existed between the real world and a fantasy world, which is home to his friend and lover Sylvia (Zainab Balogun). Filled with passion and love, the two devotees embark on a journey of commitment.
