Two cousins have opposing plans to develop their homeland on South Africa's Wild Coast. Madiba plans to mine their land for titanium and make way for a national tolled highway while his younger cousin Nonhle does not see why they should have to risk their homes, farms, graves and the environment to receive basic services like other South Africans. Meanwhile the South African Government dethrones their traditional King and Queen who speak out against the large-scale developments.
