The movie titled, ‘The CEO’ is about a global phone network, TransWire Communications, who has major operation in Nigeria.


The CEO, an expatriate, has retired hence the Global Chairman has decided to send five nominees amongst his most senior level staff across Africa on a Leadership course in order to determine which one to appoint as the new CEO of Nigeria.

Riikard Van Outen: South African, white, male, unassuming, ambitious.

All five arrive from their respective destinations and check into the beach resort where the course is holding.

Although they all appear cordial and chummy with each other, they all know what is at stake – they the ceo3each desperately want the CEO ‘s chair.

To this purpose, they attempt to covertly outdo one another throughout the duration of the course.

Assisted by Lisa, HR Coordinator for TransWire Global, the course Tutor, the mysterious,  Dr. Amet Zimmerman, starts off the course by making all five executives indulge in a round of the child’s game of musical chairs.

He uses this method to psychologically study each candidate’s modus operandi.

Jomo loses the first round, Zimmerman then sets about teaching the course, but soon intrigue, conspiracy and treachery take centre stage.

Jomo’s dead body is washed ashore the next morning, apparently ruled ‘death by misadventure’.

This shocks everyone and soon they see an alarming pattern emerging – something bad happens to whoever loses the round of musical chairs they play each morning!

One by one, each candidate begins to be eliminated, until there are only two left.

It then turns into a psychological game of sudden death but who is really behind the mysterious and fatal occurrences?

It is obvious that someone is trying to stab everyone else in the back so as to assert themselves for the prime position; a candidate who will go to the extent of murder in order to emerge as the new CEO.
