This extraordinary 3-part observational series explores life at the sharp end of one of the most extreme urban environments in the world: Lagos, Nigeria.

This eye-opening series shows what life is really like in the roughest parts of the world’s fastest growing megacity, celebrating the resilience, resourcefulness and energy of Lagos’s 16 million inhabitants, and shows how successfully many of its slum dwellers are adapting to the extreme urban future.

The best documentary about Africa I’ve ever seen. Pitch perfect – William Wallis, Africa Editor, Financial Times
