”Adoara, a marine biologist, Anthony, a famous rapper, and Agu, a soldier who’s gotten into trouble for not condoning a superior sexually assaulting a civilian, all met on Lagos’ Bar Beach when the aliens arrive on earth. The three of them are weighted down by their own personal problems, but those have to be laid aside as they are pulled under by a tidal wave and spat back out together with an extra-terrestrial being named Ayodele. Lagos is already in a state of great upheaval and the presence of the alien guests, once the fact leaks out, does not help matters. Regardless what happens, nothing will ever be the same again.”
