Keke, a veteran MK cadre who was once the CEO of a mobile phone company, wakes up one day to find his life in ruins.
He has lost his job and his wife, and he has become more and more reliant on the solace of alcohol.
After hitting rock bottom, Keke is thrust into a spiritual journey.
He meets Ami, a shaman from Mali, and travels there, where he is "cooked" and cleansed in a "meeting" with his ancestors.
Only when he is healed and understands his role in the context of a postapartheid South Africa, can Keke make a careful comeback to his country to rejoin his wife and comrades.
The global village, the African continent, and South Africa are the platforms where Keke's life unfolds in the 21st century.
