Akum is a young man well-groomed in the art of surviving precariously. His will to tackle every odd pitted against him is manifested very early in life when he assumes the role of the breadwinner of his family just after his father's death. To survive in Marine Lane, a marginalised part of town, he needs more than wit and his mother's religion and that includes success by hook or by crook. A chance meeting with the notorious Akwuba while in detention is all he needed to catapult his career into limelight.
