In Lagos, a city full of beggars, a rich woman slaps an old hunchbacked homeless man for leaning on her car. She goes home and mistreats her husband, forcing him to clean and to cook for her, treating him like a slave. Meanwhile, the offended homeless man casts a spell on the rich woman and she wakes up with an infected hand and when she goes to hospital, the doctors tell her the only solution is to amputate it.
