Oloture The Journey Netflix Review

Òlòtūré: The Journey is a sequel to the 2019 film Òlòtūré, which is available on Netflix since 2020. In 2020, Netflix released Òlòtūré, a Nigerian film filmed the year before. It depicted a young and somewhat inexperienced journalist who went undercover as a sex worker to expose a trafficking network. But by the end of the film, the reporter is on a bus leaving Nigeria. Five years later, the narrative is continued in a new sequel series.

After a reel of sequences from the 2019 film Òlòtūré, we pick up just where the film left off: Òlòtūré (Sharon Ooja) on a bus labelled “Missionary” with other sexual workers.

Òlòtūré, a journalist at a daily in Lagos, has been undercover as a sex worker, but she’s in over her head. At this point, she’s been knocked out and put on that bus bound for Benin and eventually Niger. Tony (Daniel Etim Effiong), a Lagos-based mafia leader, plans to expand his empire by trafficking women to clients in other nations.

Beauty (Adebukola Oladipupo), another sex prostitute, has managed to avoid being scooped up by Tony’s men. One of her coworkers has offered her money to take a bus home to see her mother. He instructs Alero (Omoni Oboli), who recruited the females for him, to locate replacements for Beauty and her sister, whom his goons murdered in front of the other women. However, she learns from Sir Phillip (Patrick Doyle) that one of the women in the group is a journalist.

Meanwhile, Òlòtūré copes with her circumstances as she travels from bus to car to bus to Niger. Everything changes, though, as a bunch of motorbikes approaches the bus she’s in and begins shooting. It turns out that it is a rival gang that is aware that Tony is attempting to enter their territory. To prevent this, they plan to kill everyone aboard the bus. Somehow, Òlòtūré and Peju (Beverly Osu) survive.
