    The country change, the city change, the people dem think they change, but I tell you dem shit the same. Dem all dey run from it the same. 

    One toilet attendant. Two sets of toilets. One night. Worlds apart.

    The story of a Nigerian nightclub toilet attendant, working in the toilets of a fictional club based on the Shimmy Club in Glasgow. Her conflicted journey spliced with flashbacks to the toilets of the Shrine nightclub in Lagos, Nigeria, where her younger self dreams of becoming a dancer in the revolutionary band of the late Nigerian musician, Fela Kuti.
