“Ran Mi Lowo (Help Me)” follows Yemisi, a student and aspiring investigative journalist. She decides to investigate why girls at her famous high school drop out for no apparent reason. As rumors spread that the girls are being drugged and raped, the school does nothing to follow up.

Yemisi begins her investigative mission after her best friend, Adeola, becomes a victim. To try to find out the truth, she tries to lure the attacker out by getting baited. The abuser cannot resist the pursuit of a new “prey”, and Yemisi puts her life on the line to solve the mystery and obtain justice by any means necessary.
