Nollywood Diva, Genevieve Nnaji is starring in the British drama “Farming” alongside Kate Beckinsale, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Damson Idris.

The film which is being shot in the U.K. and Nigeria started production in August and is being directed Nigerian-British writer and director Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

The film is based on Adewale’s autobiographical story, “Farming.” The script was developed at the Sundance Film Institute and chronicles his own coming-of-age story growing up fostered by a white working-class family in the U.K.

In the film, the lead character is sent to the U.K. by his parents in hopes of achieving a better life. Instead, he becomes the feared leader of a white skinhead gang in 1980s England. When all seems lost and he spirals into self-destruction, a benevolent teacher (played by Mbatha-Raw) offers him one last chance at redemption

Genevieve has shared a few photos of herself on set, in her trailer:
