The passionate romance is suddenly truncated when he has to return to his homeland to help his sick parents. Cynthia’s grandson helps her get on the internet in a bid to speak to her former lover via email, but when she receives a spam message requesting bank details for a friend who needs medical help, she assumes Darius has been in contact to ask for her support. Hilarity ensues when Cynthia finds herself travelling to Nigeria to try and trace the scammers and her life savings.
