When the king of Mahara dies at the hands this goddess, the kingdom of Mahara is suddenly plunged into palpable distress, darkness and mayhem with no hope of salvation. In the incumbent darkness, a young teen, Raya Nkube of the Rhodesu Clan wins the heart of the supreme god – Omari, due to a selfless act. Raya meets her untimely demise, but in her death she becomes something, on whom the survival of Mahara will depend. Meanwhile, on a parallel earth, on his quest to find his wife who has been presumed dead for years, geological engineer Tony Sampah, opens up a portal into the space-time continuum. But the moment the portal is opened something goes horribly wrong.
