Filmmaker Ryan Mullins (The Frog Princes) presents a thrilling feat of documentary film and investigative journalism alike as he tackles the maverick reportage of Anas Aremeyaw Anas. Anas, dubbed the James Bond of Ghanaian journalism for his stealthy and heroic efforts, uncovers and exposes various corrupt and criminal networks in Ghana by disguising himself to infiltrate the enemy and gather the facts a reporter needs to tell a story. Mullins shows that Anas’s unorthodox methods are complex affairs akin to sting operations, but Anas goes the extra step and eventually involves the authorities in his scoops and works with them to bring the no-goodniks to justice while putting them in the headlines.
