    • Synopsis
    • Themba Langa, a hard-working and determined Pelindaba engineer, is head of medical research using uranium at the plant, when he becomes a suspect in a uranium deficit witch-hunt at the company. South African Intelligence are made aware of the deficit in the uranium at Pelindaba. And so begins an intense investigation. In the attempt to clear his name, Themba works closely with the National Intelligence Agency investigator, Michael Younge, to prove his innocence. Out of her suburban paradise, Thandi – Themba’s wife – races to his defense as the nuclear weapons black market and international terrorism are linked to him. Convinced her husband is being framed, she mounts her own investigation of the smear campaign that starts at the top of the company her husband is working for and ramifies to Karachi. At the heart of the story is a computer chip containing crucial evidence that could exonerate Themba; which finds him seeking out the one man who can clear his name: a known terrorist who knows the identity of the man that is framing Themba. It is a story about love and pain, truth and deception – about one man’s fight to prove his innocence. Will the sinister clues be unraveled in time to save his career, his family and his happiness?
