The Black Book Plot/Synopsis
As seen in the trailer, the story focuses on a deacon named Paul Edima who believes that he has made terrible mistakes/sins in his past. To punish him, God took away his son, who was arrested for kidnapping. However, his son is wrongly accused of the crime, and Paul sets off on a path to revenge as he looks to expose the corrupt officials responsible for framing his innocent son. Paul Edima’s rage conveys his love for his child and the extent to which he is willing to go to prove his innocence.
The trailer flawlessly defines the tone of the movie and briefly goes on to show some important scenes without giving away any significant narrative points that would potentially spoil the experience for viewers.
Overall, it keeps a grimy, gloomy tone that action thriller aficionados will undoubtedly appreciate. Based on the trailer, viewers can expect a strong character, a thriller filled with actions that explore a wide range of subjects, such as family, retribution, and redemption, among many others.
