    Fressia Entertainment with vision of positively contributing and creating opportunities in the Nigerian entertainment industry on Monday in Lagos launched a N50 million movie, ‘Journey to Self’, into the Nigerian market targeted at empowering and educating women.

    The movie, ‘Journey to Self’, built around women empowerment, sacrifice and self-respect, is expected to be a hit as the story is emotional and captivating to watch. Featuring characters as Ashionye Michele Raccah, Dankore Akande, Tosin Sibo and Nse Ikpe-Etim, it is a movie women should take their men to watch.

    The film is about five women that have been friends since they were kids. Four of the friends, Regina, Nse, Rume and Alex, later received information that their fifth friend, Uche, has passed away. Unfortunately, Uche was the magnet that pulled her friends together and over the years became their shoulder to cry on, so much so that she never felt she could tell them about her own problems.

    On arrival at Uche’s house for mourning, the four ladies found that she left a series of letters in which she speaks to them from beyond the grave.

    The letters provoked her friends to open up on emotional baggage, as secrets and fears are revealed, leading to a journey of self-discovery.

    According to Fressia Entertainment director, Carl Raccah, the movie deals with various social issues that women face on daily basis not just in Africa, but in the world.

    Speaking to BusinessDay, he said the film is made in Nigeria with Nigerian actresses and crew and other top artists which raised the bar in terms of Nollywood production. It is more of a female orientated movie which men should also watch. ‘Journey to Self’ is an intense, dialogue-based movie where the viewer is sure to embark on the same emotional journey as the characters.

    On marketing, Raccah said that Fressia is looking at local market but the film will enter into film fairs and festival overseas later this year and next year. Raccah is confident that the international film will find a niche with Africans in Diaspora.

    He said the promoter of the film, Fressia Entertainment, is positioning itself to be a 360 entertainment company with recording studios, sound stages and music and documentaries, among others. He said Ashionye under her company, Alleykat Media, who wrote the film approached Fressia which subscribed to the story and the idea.

    Dakore and Nse XD. I already like it because the characters have Nigerian names. I'm looking forward to it.

    Love the storyline, already. Very matured and deep. I just hope the director do justice to it and not end up screwing it up. The "dialogue based" thingy is what i don't particularly care too much for, though.

    Jara TV show did a slot on it some weeks back SEE HERE-JARA TV PREVIEWS "JOURNEY TO SELF"

    Looked really good. I'm especially looking forward to Katherine Edoho, she sounded really funny in the clips I saw. Not a huge fan of Ashionye though.....hope she's improved since her Tinsel days
