The story revolves around the endless pursuit by migrants for greener pastures in Europe and the harsh realities they often meet when they get there.

The focus of the plot is on two individuals who believe that their quest to the foreign land will eventually lead to a better life.

Eyimofe is presented by Guardian’s GDN Studios and comes from a script by Chuko Esiri. It is produced by Melissa Adeyemo and stars Jude Akuwudike, Tomiwa Edun, Temi Ami-Williams, Cynthia Ebijie, and Jacob Alexander.
