Clash of personalities, betrayal and mistrust threaten to destroy Don’s legacy.
Commenting on the show, Nomsa Philiso, the director of local entertainment channels at M-Net, says: “This is a classic South African story.
“Everyday people find themselves inheriting fortunes from their bosses or family members and the defining factor is how they are able to navigate through their easily acquired riches.
“What makes this drama series a must-watch is that, despite its non-stop action, plotting and twists and turns, viewers will be exposed to content that someone around them, be it a relative, friend or neighbour, has had to live through.
“With the gripping storyline and an impressive cast, this promises to be one of the hottest dramas to premiere this April.”

But with Diliza (Aubrey Mmakola) threatening to take control of the filling station and run it to the ground, will Cynthia (Lerato Mvelase), Fix (Sello Maake Ka Nncube).
