About the Show

27 September 2022

Around a thousand years after the drowning of Atlantis, a new cataclysm threatens the five tribes of ancient Khemet. Their ancestors once fled Atlantis with bare backs and a handful of sacred objects. The rains have failed, signs and dreams disturb the night, and ghosts walk the earth. Meanwhile, an almighty power struggle is set to break out as the five tribes come together for a king’s wedding. As Princess Zazi (Bokang Phelani) of the Akachi approaches her 18th birthday, her father, King Letsha (Mothusi Magano) knows that he must either sacrifice her, or see his bloodline and reign fall to dust.
