In present day Malawi, several lives cross paths and stare human morality stark in the face. We meet Eliza, the 19-year-old timid, but loyal housemaid to Matamando, a young and successful lawyer and entrepreneur. Matamando shares with us her illicit liaison with a popular politician, Dr. Forrester Tidzakumananso, a twice-elected member of parliament, and her complex relationship with God. Through her spirituality, we meet renowned Pentecostal Pastor Reverend Duku Duku, whose faith teaches him to practice what he preaches.
But the story really starts with Ricardo Pascale, a Spanish former globe-trotting scientist recalled from retirement to authenticate results of an ongoing medical research in the Ntcheu district in the central region of Malawi. A common adversary has them encountering each other and many facets of themselves over and over again. The question is not just how they will each respond to the threat, but how each of us, given similar circumstances, would too. This is a story about life and love. It's a story of sisterhood, secrets, and what we hold most sacred. This is a story that affects us. All of us.
