Synopsis: Aziz is sitting down in his brother’s very recently moved into loft apartment. Aziz’s dark and tragic past has taken over his life, the only form of suppressing his thoughts are through drinking alcohol from his hip flask. The one person who cares for him is his brother Femi. After being ignored when trying to talk to Aziz, he sees Aziz is in his own world drinking from the hip flask. He storms over, takes the hip flask away from Aziz then urges him to stop drinking and to reclaim his life back, Aziz half-heartedly agrees. As the clock ticks the only way Femi feels he can take Aziz’s mind off his situation is through reminiscing and laughter. Time flies by and the two brothers are in sync and laughing about past events, until Aziz has to go. At this point a mysterious woman appears in the background. Femi puts a stop to Aziz going anywhere by taking his car keys and angerly expressing he’s “Over the limit” and the two stand up and square up to each other. Eventually with a bit of persuasion from Femi, reluctantly Aziz sees logic and they both sit down. The woman is now standing over Aziz. She offers out her hand to Aziz, he ignores her. She violently throws Aziz across the room. Femi gets up and kicks her in the stomach, she barely moves. A confused Femi picks Aziz off the floor wanting to know why she attacked Aziz. He is too scared to explain. Femi wants both of them to fight her and starts unleashing kicks and punches at the woman, Aziz is frozen solid. A fight ensues between the woman and Femi with Aziz still does nothing. Femi hits the woman twice with unbelievably precise headshots; however, she is not at all effected. The woman gets the best of Femi and pins him up to the wall by his throat. Femi’s life is draining away from him with Aziz standing there watching, until he musters up the courage to punch the woman full in the face knocking her down to the floor. Femi slumps to the floor. Aziz is shocked at the strength and power he generated to knock the woman down. With this, his confidence grows and charges at the woman again, she quickly gets up and forcibly shows Aziz the hip flask of alcohol which Femi took off him earlier that evening. This stops Aziz dead in his tracks and is hypnotised by the flask for a few seconds. He hesitates then takes the hip flask drinking from it immediately. Aziz starts to leave with the woman, a weak Femi calls out to him not to leave. Aziz turns back and says goodbye. The woman and Aziz exit the loft together. Femi is left by himself slumped on the floor with a defeated demeaner throughout his whole body and then he closes his eyes. A split second later he opens his eyes and inhales with terror and purpose. We then notice that Femi is in a hospital. Femi sits up and spits blood up on the floor. He slowly rises to feet and looks around. Laying on the hospital bed next to him is his brother Aziz, who is utterly still and attached to an ECG machine which is sounding out comforting heart beeps. Femi’s hand is placed on Aziz’s, when he steps back still confused from his lucid nightmare, his hand slips off Aziz’s. As soon as they disconnect Aziz starts having violent convulsions. After a short moment of shock, Femi calls out to the medical staff. A split second later a doctor and a nurse run in the room. The nurse goes straight to Femi while the Doctor begins to work on Aziz. The nurse tries to escort an emotional Femi out of the hospital room until Femi stops and notices who the Doctor is. Her name is Dr W.Eski and it’s the same woman in Femi’s lucid nightmare who took Aziz away. The Doctor is about to administer some anti-seizure medication but as soon as she touches Aziz, he starts flatlining. The crash team is called, and Femi is now completely ejected from the room, however he is able to watch the proceedings through gaps from blinds at a window. The crash team shortly arrives and work tiresomely on Aziz. As time passes the crash team realise their efforts are futile and soon pronounce him dead. The team discuss how and what he died from also, who should tell Femi he has passed away, Dr W.Eski volunteers. She walks out and is face to face with a petrified Femi, through the window in the background is Aziz’s cold, lifeless dead body.
