Breath of Life wins the Best Movie award at the 2024 Africa Magic Viewers' Choice Awards

Breath of Life is a powerful and inspiring film that explores themes of faith, purpose, and redemption.
The story is told from the perspective of Elijah and follows Timi, a gifted young man who becomes the first African clergyman in the Church of England. After marrying Bridget and having a daughter, he returns to Nigeria, leading a fulfilling life until tragedy strikes. His family falls victim to Baby Fire, a local thug, leading to a series of tragic events that turn Timi into a recluse.
