An unnamed defendant stands accused of murder. Just before the closing speeches, the young man sacks his lawyer and decides to give his own defence speech. He tells us that his barrister told him to leave some things out. Sometimes the truth can be too difficult to explain or believe. But he thinks that if he's going to go down for life, he might as well go down telling the truth.
There are eight pieces of evidence against him. As he talks us through them one by one, his life is in our hands. We, the listener - a member of the jury - must keep an open mind till we hear the end of his story. His defence raises many questions...but at the end of the speeches, only one matters: did he do it?

A young Nigerian boy is on trial for murder. Wanting to tell the jury the whole story from his point of view, he sacks his Q.C. and makes his own closing speech. Over the course of ten days, we hear of his life trying to avoid being drawn into the fringes of the drug gangs, his love for his girlfriend (?Kaira) and his increasing desperation as he becomes enmeshed in a life he never wanted.
This is one of the best narrations I have ever listened to.
