Mentally is the second film featuring Frank Donga moving to a new town or city in search of greener pastures. The first film was “Hakkunde” by Asurf Oluseyi. While the heart and flesh of “Hakkunde” is laced with inspiration for the job seeking youth, “Mentally” is more of a humorous drama taking inspiration from social ills. The story line rings in similarity to old Nollywood tales of comedic actors moving to the city to create chaos.
When Akin decides to move to Lagos from his hometown, his mother rings a few words to his ears. She insists that her son remembers where he is from and never lose hold of his training and the essence of his background. Her naïve son, Akin (Kunle Idowu) ends up in Lagos with the hope that he would stay with his former school friend Emeka.
