In Cape Town, Abeeda (Rayda Jacobs) is a devout Muslim mother of grown children. She wears traditional garments and prays five times a day, but a chance trip to the casino, and a big win, cause her to stray. When her son dies, she turns to the casino for solace, and her addiction spirals out of control. Soon, this intelligent and independent woman has lost everything, and finds herself with mounting debts and a dangerous involvement with gangsters.
