93 Days is based on the true story of men and women who risked their lives and made sacrifices to save us all from the consequences of an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Nigeria.

The film produced and directed by Steve Gukas stars Danny Glover, Bimbo Akintola, Tim Reid, Somkele Iyamah Idhalama, Alastair Mackenzie, Keppy Ekpeyong Bassey, Bimbo Manuel, Charles Okafor and Gideon Okeke.
According to the film’s website, when Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian American collapses upon arrival at the Muritala Mohammed International airport, Lagos Nigeria. He is taken to First Consultant Hospital, where he is admitted with fever like symptoms.
Against his denials of contact with any Ebola victim in Liberia, the team at first consultant led by Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh quickly deduce there is more to his case than malaria. Their vigilance leads to an early detection that Mr Sawyer indeed had the Ebola Virus disease. Now it’s a race against time to contain a deadly disease from breaking out and infecting an entire city population and beginning what could be the biggest deadly disease outbreak the world has ever known.
The hospital institutes strict barrier nursing and notify the appropriate authorities. The Lagos state government and subsequently the federal go into overdrive. The President declares a state of emergency on Ebola in Nigeria. The scare is palpable across the country. The doomsday scenario imagined is here.
Over a 93-day period from when Sawyer comes in men and women from Nigeria, WHO and MSF do battle with this deadly disease. Lives are lost and heroes born.
At its core, 93 Days is a compelling human story of dedication, sacrifice, resilience and survival.
