A look at the intricate lives of Zainab, Zara & Sugar – Dust

Dust throws us into the lives of three captivating women – Zainab, Zara, and Sugar – each battling their own desires, defying expectations, and grappling with the complexities of love, family, and ambition.

Zainab: The resilient heart in search of a safe haven
Zainab's young life has been anything but easy. Forced to leave everything she knows and flee abroad, she returns to Nigeria yearning for a fresh start and a secure future. Weary of their precarious existence overseas, she hopes to rebuild on Nigerian soil, both in her personal life and career. But the past, like a persistent weed, refuses to stay buried. As Zainab tries to reinvent herself, she discovers that some wounds run deep, reminding her that blood ties are a double-edged sword. Here's a woman who yearns for a life free of burdens, but must confront the past to claim her future.

Zara: The quiet strength within
Life hasn't been kind to Zara either. A debilitating accident stole her ability to walk, and an arranged marriage to the immature Marcus Doherty seems another cruel twist of fate. Yet, Zara possesses immense inner strength. Initially depicted as the dutiful daughter, she slowly evolves into a woman who understands the power dynamics of her world and isn't afraid to play the game. Torn between her familial loyalty and a blossoming love for Marcus' brother, Rhodes, Zara is caught in a web of conflicting desires. Can she find happiness by following her heart, or will duty prevail?

Sugar: The fiery spirit with a hidden agenda
Sugar, the vibrant and fiery daughter of Garuba, injects a burst of colour into the lives of the other characters. While some find her carefree personality annoying, there's no denying her zest for life. Chosen for Rhodes by his mother, Hajia, Sugar's initial charm masks a deeper agenda. Her love for Rhodes borders on obsession, and her loyalty shifts as the story unfolds. From "random girlfriend" to "vindictive antagonist," Sugar's transformation promises explosive twists and turns.

These three women, each facing unique challenges, are the heart and soul of Dust. Their journeys of love, loss, and the relentless pursuit of happiness will keep you glued to your screen. Will Zainab find her safe haven? Will Zara defy societal expectations and embrace true love? Can Sugar overcome her possessiveness and find a healthy path?
