Untying Kantai follows King Kantai, a man who has spent 30 years of his life working hard to provide for his family, only to be conned out of his life savings. Now streaming.

Untying Kantai is a 13-part dramedy that follows King Kantai (Benson Ojuwa from County 49), a man who has spent 30 years of his life working hard to provide for his family, only to be conned out of his life savings. In the midst of his mid-life crisis, fate throws him a curveball in the form of a truckload of antipsychotic drugs worth millions. Kantai is faced with a life-changing decision: turn the drugs over to the authorities and live with his past mistakes, or take a chance and sell them to secure his family’s future.
