Professor Okpodu, a successful businessman, and his two sons are excited about the prospect of their company becoming Africa’s biggest solar energy business. To realise the dream, they hire a female consultant from the United States of America. The sexy consultant becomes an object of desire for the professor’s sons, pushing them into a bitter rivalry for her body and soul. She, however, has a different agenda: avenging the death- in the professor’s beach house- of her sister, a young woman with less than licit links to the professor and his two feuding sons. This sets off a series of events that lifts the lid on the dark secrets of the professor and his two sons as well as how her sister died.
