In the grip of a relentless drug epidemic that threatens to dismantle the very foundation of Oro Lede, Maje stands at a profound crossroads. Torn between the bonds of loyalty that bind him and a deep-seated desire to uplift his people, his path becomes a precarious dance on the edge of morality.
The inner conflict
Watching his community succumb to the clutches of drug abuse and rising crime rates, Maje faced a dilemma. On one hand, his mentor and father figure, Imole, led the charge in a drug trade that plagued Oro Lede. Yet, Maje's heart pulled him in the opposite direction – towards a mission to help the youth break free from the cycle of addiction and gang violence.
Maje's dual commitment:
In a bid to balance these conflicting loyalties, Maje made a bold decision: to serve two masters. He joined the gang, not with the intention of escalating the drug trade but to redirect the proceeds toward a foundation dedicated to combating drug abuse among Oro Lede's youth.
