‘Citation’ tells the story of a 21-year-old female student on a Nigerian campus who takes the case of a trendy university don to the institution’s senate body on account of the latter’s treatment of her.

Subsequent events that unfold eventually pit her world against that of the respected academic, revealing the realities that frequently play out in many male-dominated educational environments.

Among those who starred in the movie are Ibukun Awosika, chairman of First Bank of Nigeria (FBN); Temi Otedola, Joke Silvia, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Ini Edo, Yomi Fash-Lanso, Adjetey Anang, Gabriel Afolayan, Bienvenu Neba, and the late Sadiq Daba.
