In this fictitious but myth-like tale set in the tradition-bound Yorubaland of 1909, a wealthy female trader, Aramotu (Idiat Sobande), tries to employ the social-engineering aspects of the Gelede Cult to realize her progressive ideas about the rights of women and the need for people-oriented governance.

Aramotu’s crusade, in collaboration with a rebellious artiste (Gabriel Afolayan), not only jeopardizes her unusually beautiful relationship with her supportive husband (Kayode Odumosu). It also dips her life in the venom of the community’s reactionary elements, comprising a land-grabbing economic shark (Ayo Olabiyi), an envious ‘Women’s Leader’ (Ireti Osayemi-Bakare) and a puppet-like Head Chief (Tubosun Odunsi)
