Ebuwa was forced to travel abroad by her mother to engage in the business of prostitution in order to facilitate the upliftment of the financial status of her family. On arrival in Europe, she fell in love with Ikpomwonsa, the man that came to her rescue when she was stranded on arrival in Europe because her aunty who she was sent to meet was in jail for related offence, "human-trafficking". "Ikpomwonsa wants to marry her". This infuriated her mother who insisted she wasn't sent to go and marry in Europe, but to go and make money---like other girls.

The agony, deception, passion, greed and tragedy that followed is what unfolds as the captivating story of Ebuwa is told. It features an anti-stigmatization appeal and a landmark judgment on murder. This tragedy of greed is told in Edo language, aided with professional cinematography.
