This bold move immediately immerses us in Ishaya’s world, igniting our curiosity and setting the stage for an enthralling storytelling experience. It’s no wonder that Dami Elebe is hailed as one of Africa’s finest immersive storytellers.

CHARACTER: Dami Elebe’s commendable choice of making Ishaya a proactive character adds depth and complexity to the series. Proactive characters possess the qualities of exceptional heroes. As Ishaya embarks on his journey, he gradually uncovers the root of his problems and discovers his true desires. This character development is brilliantly brought to life in the awe-inspiring “RESOLUTION” episode, directed by the visionary Kenneth Gyang, leaving us in awe of its sheer brilliance.

SUBPLOT: The enthralling journey of Ishaya intertwines with the compelling narratives of Atlas, Adufe, and Rambo, creating a rich tapestry of interconnected storylines. The definitive goals of these characters, coupled with Ishaya’s own transformative path, contribute to making “Far From Home” a truly unique Nigerian tale.
