An exclusive safari lodge, the who’s who of South Africa’s new politically connected elite are gathering to celebrate the engagement party of ZANELE MAJOLA, a minister’s daughter, to LIFA MAPUFO, a rising political star. An open truck of delighted tourists; the morning game drive makes a grisly discovery. The mauled remains of Zanele’s ravaged corpse in the pristine beauty of the African wilderness.
Two young lovers, DERREN and ECHO, waiters at the safari lodge are brought in for questioning. Their complicity in the Zanele’s murder seems obvious and DINGANE FAKUDE, Special Crimes Unit, arrives to investigate the murder hoping for a swift conviction in order to protect his politically powerful masters. Aiding him in the investigation is the small town cop, NAVEED KHAN, a self-styled outcast and trained psychologist. But things are not as they appear. What looks like an open and shut case soon leads to a maze of deceit and revenge.
Delving into the alluring psychological makeup of the accused, Dingane and Naveed uncover a series of killings connected to Echo and Derren. Satisfied that he can pin the blame for Zanele’s murder on the young lovers and at the same time provide Lifa with a solution to his problem, Dingane moves swiftly to wrap up the case.
Escorting the accused to Pretoria, the cops embark on a road trip across South Africa – from the verdant tropical beaches of Kwa-Zulu Natal to the farmlands of the Highveld – following the murderous trail of the love-struck young killers.
As the journey progresses, the seed of doubt is planted by Naveed, who begins to question Dingane’s actions. His loyalties are tested when Dingane must confront his own complicity in granting impunity to the new elite. In a dramatic standoff which tests the limits of his partnership with Naveed, Dingane must make a choice whether to put aside his political affiliations and save the life of an innocent child, or satisfy his obligations to the puppet masters.
