Don (Dumisani Mbebe) and Grace (Nthati Moshesh) run the powerful global empire of Bhengu Beauty. Like any huge empire, within the lavishness and extravagance of Bhengu House, some dark secrets are kept hidden from the world. But, Don and Grace are not the only ones with secrets in their closets.
The face of Bhengu Beauty, Zinhle Manzini (Rosemary Zimu), has some secrets of her own. Slowly and steadily, she penetrates the fortress of Don and Grace’s kingdom with the intent to deal a crushing blow. Manzini seeks revenge at any cost, but Don and Grace won’t surrender without handing a challenge to Manzini’s quest for vengeance.
