'A Place in the Stars' is a riveting story of illicit drug trafficking, violence, turf wars and conscientious dilemmas. A Place in the Stars is an account of one man's choice between conscience and the pull to get rich or die trying.

Set in 2006 Nigeria, A Place in the Stars tells the story of Kim Dakim (Gideon Okeke), a young lawyer with a case and a client that leaves him professionally conflicted. Kim is in possession of information that could save lives, if he would only pass it on. Faced with the deathly consequences of crossing 'industry' kingpins, including the toughest of them all, Diokpa Okonwo (Segun Arinze); and with millions to earn if he would only turn a blind eye, Kim battles conscience and professional responsibility as he determines which way to turn.
The premiere was supported by Nigerian Film Corporation, National Film & Video Censors Board, Old Mutual, Moet & Chandon, Landmark Centre, Michelangelo Productions, Jungle Filmworks, T Large Media Limited, Massive Entertainment, Ministry of Information, UBER, Casper & Gambini, Cadbury, Nasco, Ayana Productions, Blake & Harper, Soundcity, ONTV, AfricaMagic, Silverbird Film Distribution, Cool FM, Wazobia FM, Smooth FM, Classic FM, Beat FM, City FM, Rhythm FM, Pulse NG, Best of Nollywood & WE 106.3 FM.
