Storyline

Raymond and Tagbo met when they were eight. Although from radically different worlds - Raymond/Rag is from a single parent West Indian home, while Tagbo/Tag is the only son of middle class Nigerian parents - they remain inseparable until the cusp of their teens, Social Services take Rag from London. Ten years later, Rag returns to find Tag. They still want to be together. But now twenty-three, their need has shifted into something more urgent and consuming. Other things have changed too. Tag is just finishing law school and discovering how hard it is to find a position. Tag also has a white girlfriend, and since her impressive credentials aren't even good enough for Tag's father, Rag doesn't stand a chance. Rag sees even less room for himself in Tag's life when Tag's friend Olisa flies into London. Young, rich and shady, Rag knows Olisa is trouble. When Rag and Tag are invited to Nigeria for Olisa's Chieftaincy ceremony, Rag is determined to save Tag from his machinations. In this ... Written by Anonymous

Great film - entertained and educated
15 October 2008 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

W Sharpe Director of New Media, Public Broadcasting Atlanta – 30th July 2007 "I recently saw the film Rag Tag during the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta. I thought it was a bold, daring, provocative film. I was surprised at the reaction of some of the viewers of the film and their objection to the subject matter.

I think that the Arts Festival is exactly the place to exhibit such works. It is a place for artists to exhibit their craft and enlighten to public through their art. Please do not censor future content. I have learnt many things through the films presented at the Arts Festival and it would be a shame if the narrow minded views of a few stifled lifelong learning.

The film has been a topic of discussion among the friends I brought with me to screen the film and those who were not in attendance. I'd like to know if the film is in release on DVD or will be screened at any other festivals around the country."

C Anderson - 8th and 10th August, 2007 "I just saw Rag Tag at the Philadelphia Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. It was Great. I felt that the audience at the showing I attended really responded positively to the film (and it was a full house)…. The accents were certainly present, but they were by no means a hindrance. I am probably more challenged by a strong southern accent from the USA - and that's in my own country!
