With a twist that literally takes your breath away!

Just a few days away from their civil ceremony, Hugo and Ben's lives couldn’t be more perfect. Hugo is a talented assistant curator at a local art museum, while Ben is a successful advertising executive. Everyone views them as the 'dream couple' - with the exception of Ben’s snooty, disapproving mother. Their long awaited honeymoon vacation to South Africa had finally arrived and it had become everything they'd hoped for. Then on their last day, the two handsome men find themselves lured by adventurous sexual fantasies - surrendering to the temptation of extramarital affairs. Unfortunately for Ben, it costs him his freedom.

Torn apart by a kidnapping, an abductor that wants payment beyond the usual monetary ransom, Hugo’s world is turned upside down as he tries all he can to locate his man. Slowly, he becomes exposed to a world of crime tucked beneath the murky shadows of beautiful Cape Town. But with the help of new friends, Hugo has the strength to remain hopeful and optimistic that he’ll soon see Ben again.
