1980 - the old colonial powers still control banking in Africa. A group of visionary African business people decide something has to change. They need to set-up their own bank. 30 years later Ecobank is a leading pan-African institution. Using dramatic reconstruction, extensive archive and interviews with the bank’s founders, politicians and journalists we follow the intrigue and drama of this incredible journey.
