Two cousins from a close-knit rural community have opposing plans to develop their homeland on South Africa's Wild Coast. Nonhle wants to preserve their traditional Pondo lifestyle, spectacular coastline and family graves through eco-tourism. After titanium is discovered, Nonhle's older cousin Madiba intends to turn their community into a bustling mining town and supports the South African Government's plans to build a highway through their land. He believes large-scale developments are the only way to bring his community the hospitals, schools and roads they need so badly. Meanwhile, their Pondo King and Queen are dethroned by Government after speaking out against the developments. To fight for their throne the Royals must take on Government who have replaced the King with his pro-mining nephew.
