TOBI BALOGUN, (Chris Attoh) a 35 year old, naturalist doctor, and son to RTD. POLICE SERGEANT, ABU BALOGUN, (Dele Odule) is in love, and ready to marry NANCY OKEZIE, (Toyin Abraham) 30, daughter of DONALD OKEZIE, (Charles Inojie) an old-school LAWYER. However, trouble starts after they secretly get engaged, and introduce each other to their families.
Donald Okezie remembers Abu Balogun as an unrepentant liar who scuttled his biggest lawsuit, and coupled with the fact that Tobi is a naturalist doctor, which Donald terms as a herbalist, he decides to prevent his daughter from marrying Tobi.
Abu Balogun remembers Donald as the man who snatched his first love and wife, then frustrated his promotion. Hence he decides not only to separate his son from the Nancy, but also punish Donald for his past sins.
Tobi and Nancy are never aware of the quiet but raging battle between their parents. All they notice is that both parents readily agree on anything and everything that pushes the marriage away, or even cancel it. Tobi and Nancy begin to suspect each other for the stalemate, accusing each other of unconfirmed infidelity and unfaithfulness.
The children finally decide to go their separate ways, but information soon comes into the open, revealing the parents have been the stumbling block to their union.
