Set in contemporary Lagos, Nigeria, The Estate tells the story of the family chief Adeyemi, a wealthy businessman with an extended family scattered across the globe. His wife is hastily arranging his burial. She wants to make the funeral festivities the talk of the town but the children are more concerned with their financial inheritance. Inevitably sparks begin to fly.
