Why watch this film?

Inspired by the legend of Shields "Emperor" Green, the movie tells the story of a descendant of African kings who was enslaved and fought for abolition in the United States. Unlike most works on the subject, the feature film focuses more on the heroic and action-packed journey of the protagonist than on the drama and horrors of slavery, highlighting the courage and resistance of the black people. In the cast, stand out Dayo Okeniyi, who gives life to the main character, an actor still little known, but who shines on the screen.
