PLOT : Two years ago William Ashbee lived and worked in Lagos. When he returns for a visit he decides he wants to learn as much as he can about this city and Nigeria, as a whole. He realizes the best way to do this is to live out the lives of three Nigerians, over a 24 hour period each. Each day will represent the lifestyle of one of Lagos’ three distinct social classes: the poor, the middle class and the wealthy elite. Part one sees William living the lives of two agberos (hustlers) in the ghettos of Oshodi.
