Themba is pressured into killing a member form the enemy gang. He tries to prolong the order. After witnessing Raza’s brutality, a fearful Themba knows he can’t avoid the initiation ritual, he agrees to go and kill his mark. Devastated, Themba discovers that his new mark is Sizwe, who is not only his lover but the younger brother of the rival gang leader, Khaya. After taking credit for the accidental murder of Skhumba, Khaya’s right hand man, Themba believes he is finally free. The two lovers plan to run away together.
