Meet Richard Keeton, a renowned big game hunter whose life takes an unforeseen turn when he finds himself next in line to inherit a prestigious British Lordship. However, his elation is short-lived as he realizes that his family's fortune lies in ruins, leaving him unable to embrace the opulent lifestyle that should accompany his pending title.
Driven by a relentless desire to restore his wealth, Richard stumbles upon a perilous scheme that could be his ticket to fortune: poaching animals. With the clandestine assistance of Alijah, a wise and resourceful tribesman, Richard ventures into the dark underbelly of the wildlife trade. Secretly slaughtering animals and orchestrating illicit transactions, he begins to build a lucrative network focused on smuggling highly sought-after rhino horns and elephant tusks.
Yet, Richard's nefarious poaching ring teeters on the brink of collapse when an unexpected obstacle emerges. Michael Sandburg, an American researcher, enters the picture, captivated by Richard's stepdaughter and unknowingly becoming entangled in a dangerous web of suspicion. As Michael's curiosity intensifies, he finds himself on the verge of uncovering Richard's sinister activities. The stakes escalate as he faces an impossible choice between safeguarding his future family or dedicating himself to a newfound mission to protect endangered animals at all costs.
