When she was just 15, Orah shot and killed her rapist father in Nigeria. After leaving her newborn baby boy in the care of her mother, she fled to Canada. Now in Toronto, seventeen years later, she's doing everything she can to have her teenage son join her. Despite her good intentions, a series of shady and violent events snowball beyond her control, leaving her son dead - murdered by those she entrusted with his very life. So begins a gut-wrenching and timely tale of revenge. Along the way ORAH (cast) will acquire new allies and enemies alike, as she unknowingly tugs on a loose thread of corruption that reveals a much larger web. One thing remains consistent, this heartbroken mother's relentless and fearless fight to avenge and honour her slain son.
