What is the movie “Isemi” about? Isemi Synopsis
The story was about Dunmola (Acted by Damilola Oni) who exchanged her soul for intelligence.
Dunmola right from childhood had always been seen as unintelligent. She sought one of her friends’ help on this, and the friend took her to a spiritualist for help.
At the spiritualists’ shrine, Dunmola and her friend met two females by the name of Professor (Acted by Adeola Olusola (MO) and Foladara Faturoti.)
The professors promised to help Dunmola only if she exchanged her soul. Dunmola agreed to exchange her soul for intelligence. She was however warned to quickly return to pick up her soul whenever she was sick or sensed death was knocking on her door, else, she would walk around the surface of the earth invisibly and won’t be able to get into heaven.
Sadly, Dunmola was killed by her colleagues before she could get her soul back. Her colleagues killed her because she wanted to expose their fraudulent acts. So, after her death, Dunmola wandered about but no one saw her. One day, a powerful man saw her and gave her a few days to go retrieve her soul back so she could have the tool needed to get into heaven.
Dunmola returned alive, to her apartment but found out that it was already occupied by a young man, Ayoola (Acted by Adeniyi Johnson) who was mourning the mysterious death of his fiance, Titilayo (Acted by Nike Hamzat.)
After a series of disagreements, Dunmola and Ayoola became friends while Dunmola narrated her story. Dunmola sprung into action by first killing her colleagues who killed her. She then exposed the person who killed Ayoola’s fiance.
Who killed Ayoola’s fiance?
Ayoola’s fiance, Titilayo was killed by his best friend, Sesan (Acted by Samuel Busari) who was envious of Ayoola’s success. Sesan killed Titilayo because she threatened to tell Ayooala about how he was defrauding him and envious of him.
In the latter part of the film, Dunmola got her soul back and died again.
