A deep secret links Bimbo Manuel, Mike Ezuruonye and Uti Nwachukwu in the movie Breathless – a not exactly small matter of the unresolved murder of Professor Okpodu’s mistress connects the trio.
Fingers point in the direction of Ezuruonye and the matter is made worse when the sister to the mistress, Jenny, arrives from the sky to work for Prof. Okpodu, in an attempt to blow the evil whirlwind open and avenge her sister’s death. She falls into a lust triangle and becomes the trigger for an almighty feud between Nwachukwu and Ezuruonye.
The movie climaxes when it exposes minute-by-minute the messy secrets.
Ezuronye stars as Ben (Okpodu’s biological son), Bimbo Manuel (Professor Okpodu), Uti Nwachukwu as Priye (adopted son), Brycee Bassey (Jenny), Bobby Michaels (detective) and John Njamah as Kwame.
Charles Uwagbai, who had previously directed Okoro The Prince, Black Sillhuoete and Drive, directed the film.
Nwachukwu just got nomination for The Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Breathless while Ezuronye was nominated for the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) as Best Actor in a Drama (TV/Series) also for his role in Breathless. The movie will debut in cinemas July 1.
