Lanre in Lagos is a story about a streetwise, articulate young man with a dream to break out of poverty and improve his life. He works as an informal security guard in the abandoned Chinatown in Lagos, Nigeria, rides horses at the Polo Club and ekes a living from selling cellular phone charge cards. His life changes when a company buys the abandoned Chinatown where he lives for real estate development, kicks out the squatters and appoints him Chief Security Officer. He re-visits the 77 Steps neighborhood where he grew up and embarks on making a plan to fulfill his future goals in a story of re-birth out of the destruction of the old.
