Saro (Kunle Remi), a simple craftsman wanders into a village with the power of resurrection.
This earns him the name, Anikulapo, meaning one who holds death in his purse.
As his power becomes more evident, his fame begins to rise and the forces begin to gather around him.
He soon falls into a romantic relationship with a young lady whose antics cause her to be described as a man-eater.
As events begin to unfold, it is left to see if the one who holds death can save himself.
A film by Kunle Afolayan, ‘Anikulapo’ is a story of death, resurrection and the greedy desires of men.
Earlier in the year, Mr Afolayan unveiled Hakeem Kae-Kazim as the star of his next movie.
Taking to his Facebook page, the filmmaker likened the upcoming movie to the globally acclaimed hit series, ‘Game of Throne’ but with a better representation of the Nigerian culture.

“The movie is being shot on our latest project site KAP Film Village Studio and Resort Igbojaye, Komu in Itesiwaju Local Government, Oyo State,” he wrote.
