Bright Wonder Obasi wrote, produced and directed the film.

Obasi says the movie ‘CHAINS’ is more than another faith-based film. He describes it as an inspiring and emotional drama/thriller that delves into the 21st-century Gospel Music ministry and the music industry worlds.

He said: ‘‘With a captivating storyline, it explores the theme of God’s overwhelming love that will leave the 99 and go in search of one lost soul. The movie also dissects the internal struggles of pursuing one’s dream in a world that often challenges one’s beliefs and faith, making it a must-watch for all.

‘‘It tells the story of a Gospel Artiste on a journey to balance his Music Ministry and the realities of the music industry, putting at risk all he’s built over the years while battling a moral disease common to all humanity but determined to live no longer a slave’’.
Agenda setting

Additionally, the filmmaker said films have become more influencers of societal norms and values than the Sunday School classroom.
