The story takes place in the year 2000, 6 years after apartheid ended. Publicly the president announces a path for forgiveness and reconciliation, but behind closed doors several party members disagree and begin making plans to target former members of the apartheid regime. They secretly appoint a team and begin developing covert operations to take out apartheid war criminals who escaped justice and other political rivals in ways that do not raise suspicion. Xuxa is a member of that team, until one day she decides to disobey the government, by refusing to kill a boy and becomes a target herself. While in hiding Xuxa and the boy develop a bond, this bond slowly transforms Xuxa’s hardened personality and allows her to reconnect with her own humanity.
