Synopsis: Head Gone, Dare Fasasi, Nigeria/Sweden, 2014, 111min.
Due to a road mishap, a bus driver loses some psychiatric patients on the way to a federal hospital. To cover up the mistake, he and a nurse pick up unsuspecting commuters to substitute the patients, and the plot thickens as the new passengers must try to prove their sanity in a psychiatric institution, while the escapees try to adjust to a new environment.
A comedy of errors that features some of Nigeria’s finest entertainers. In addition to having a star- studded cast, this comedy also delves into socio-political realism with a plot that binds several strands of sub-themes like mal-administration, corruption, professional misconduct, bad leadership amongst others.
Head Gone is a reflection of the globally accepted truism that there’s a thin line between sanity and insanity.
