Sierra, an eccentric young black visual artist in Johannesburg discovers she is pregnant. The father, Tiro is her boyfriend and manager. He convinces her to consume an abortion-inducing concoction. Instead of ending the pregnancy, she is bestowed with the inexplicable ability to excrete gold coins. An uproarious and darkly comedic chain of events follows as Skorra, a pawn shop owner and his henchmen invade her home with the hope of extracting the gold coins. Her loft, a sanctuary of artistic expression, becomes an unexpected battleground of wits and resolve, and the pursuit of riches spirals into a deadly showdown.
