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?

Of course, everyone knows Maingi as that weak and high-pitched, spoilt son of Daniel. However, he is being moulded to handle legitimate business operations. And when everything seems promising, Abigail’s henchman, Mzilikazi, loots the plan by kidnapping him.

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.
