Filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, has unveiled the official trailer of his new work titled Roti.

The 2:18mins trailer was released on Thursday ahead of the film’s cinema premiere scheduled for June 30.

Starring Kate Henshaw, Fathia Balogun and Toyin Oshinaike, among others, Roti continues Kunle’s tradition of producing chilling psychological thrillers.

It is the story of a couple that lose their young son, only for the wife to see another boy who is an exact replica years after. Her hope for a reunion with the deceased and desperation to keep another woman’s child soon spiral out of control.

The film, which also stars Kunle Afolayan; his son, Darasimi Afolayan, and mother, Omoladun Afolayan, treats grief, reincarnation, hope, desperation and mental illness.

It was screened at Filmhouse Cinema, Lekki on May 5 as part of the celebration of Lagos at 50.

Roti was produced by Golden Effects Pictures in collaboration with Africa Magic Films.
