Lagos is on fire. Once known as the powerhouse of Africa, the sprawling city is melting under a deadly heatwave.

Martin, however, is mostly oblivious. He moved to Lagos with a top job with one of the world’s most profitable oil companies. Trained to think of nothing but profit margins and his own career, his eyes are firmly set on the bottom line.

Ansara, on the other hand, is finding life impossible since her father died working in unsafe conditions at the oil company. As a single mother to a young son who doesn’t speak, she faces disastrous consequences when she suddenly loses her own job for no good reason.

When Ansara finds herself working for Martin as his cook, she thinks her prayers have been answered. As tensions rise and protests at the oil company get out of control, Ansara and Martin are suddenly thrown together in the unlikeliest of ways. But Martin stands for everything that has rendered Ansara’s life in her country unbearable – can they ever overcome their differences?

As Mother Nature unleashes her fury, and the world around them burns, can they find their common thread of humanity?
