Investigative journalist Luyanda Masinda’s ( Noxolo Dlamini’s) life is thrown into shock when her one night lover, renowned editor Stanley Galloway ( Rob van Vuuren ), is hijacked and killed in front of her in a busy Jo’burg street. When it becomes clear that Stanley’s death was engineered by unknown forces in high places, and Luyanda discovers that Stanley has been receiving explosive information from a secret military whistle-blower, she realizes that the clue to his death may lie with the secrets the whistle-blower is determined to reveal. After an initial clash, Luyanda and the whistle-blower Albert Loots ( Irshaad Ally ) join forces and must sacrifice everything in their quest to expose state capture of South Africa’s military assets by a corrupt group profiteering from the illicit trade in military hardware and chemical weaponry to rogue states across Africa.
