King Mkhulunkosi, a staunch traditionalist in his ‘ilihhiya’ cloth, ‘emajobo’ loin skin and ‘ligwalagwala’ red feathers in his hair, has difficulty coping with his daughter’s ideas.

Although marriage is not part of her plans, she find s herself in the arms of her enemy, the charming Mr Nkosi, a prince himself from the ‘Ndlovukati’ or She-Elephant clan. ‘Is love truly akin to hate?’ she wonders?
