Nodada’s film is set in Richards Bay and loosely based on true events and follows Aluta in her running to be the first female president of South Africa. Her campaign is side-tracked when her sister, an investigative journalist, is murdered, in what police determined to be a suicide. As Aluta shifts attention away from her presidential dream to pursue justice, she begins to uncover harsh secrets about her past and deceased parents.
