This is an epic drama series about the nascent kingdom of Ibaokuta and its struggle for peace. Jagungbade, the beloved King’s desire is for a kingdom based on equality, love, justice, prosperity, and peace. Suddenly assailed by a barrage of strange dreams spelling doom for the kingdom, he looks into the White Calabash of Truth for guidance. What he sees so shocks him that he suffers a heart attack. With his last breath, he instructs Awojide, the Chief Priest, to crown his second son, Obafemi, king. An instruction at odds with the founding agreement of the kingdom that anyone from the three ‘tribes’ can become the king. This kingship was to be determined by a vote of everyone in the kingdom.
