A man is hi-jacked and beaten whilst stopping to buy roses from a vendor on the side of the road in a xenophobia torn, small, coastal town on the Garden Route. This is the beginning of a maelstrom of events brought about by the failure of the country's infrastructure that has resulted in power cuts and water shortages across South Africa. Seeking security on a small, residential island, Mike van Staaden gathers his family and friends around him but soon realises that all their lives hang in the balance when the fresh water supply finally runs out. Drawn together by circumstances beyond their control, a determined group set out to find an answer to their plight little realising that they will soon be thrown into a menacing world of greed and corruption where violence is king and their solidarity the only thing that they can use to fight back. As the past comes back to haunt him, Mike realises that his friends are not quite what they seem.
