Delivering an electrifying performance, Hlomla Dandala plays freedom fighter and military veteran Azania Maqoma who styles himself as an arbiter of justice while driving secret agendas to settle scores with old foes. The cast includes renowned actors Motshabi Tyelele, Jack Devnarain, Lerato Mvelase and Pallance Dladla.
