Birdman and Benny Boom Executive Produce ‘Tazmanian Devil’ an Immigrant Drama. Nigerian immigrant, Dayo, struggles to balance his desire to join a college frat and bonding with his religious father.
19-year-old Nigerian immigrant DAYO (Attah) starts his first year at an American University after recently moving to the United States. Naturally reserved, Dayo decides to join Tau Alpha Zeta (TAZ), a popular African-American fraternity that represents the flair and confidence he’s missing in his life. During the initiation process, Dayo begins to bond with his fellow group of pledges. At home, Dayo must keep his pledging life a secret from his previously estranged father, JULIUS (Mwine), a strictly religious pastor. Adding to the tension of unfamiliarity between the two is Dayo’s hidden resentment toward his father who abandoned him, and his mother ELIZABETH (Oduye), in Nigeria to start a new life, in the United States, when Dayo was just a child. As his home life and new life grows increasingly challenging, Dayo must decide if he wants to appease his father or if he wants to become his own man.
