Emma is a British journalist who will lose her internship in South Africa if she doesn’t get a published story…and soon and she unwittingly lands the story of Prikesh. Alfie is an entertainment agent and after losing his last and only client, he is forced to take on Prikesh to try and resurrect his business and life. None of their clues are solid so they are constantly shooting in the dark and getting it wrong.

The DNA doctor played by singer and SA legend Dr Victor, only helps to stir the pot even more.
