The scheming and deceitful Daniel is at last cornered by his evil ways. His son, Maingi, has been placed at the centre of what’s supposed to be a feud of only him and his rival, Abigail. Will he counter his sworn enemy or try to save his son?

Now, for the first time, Daniel is ensnared and appears completely helpless. He can’t trace his son, but he fears to report the matter to the police.
