The series features the night of 13th November 2010, where Anni Neena Dewani, a Swedish woman of Indian origin was kidnapped and brutally murdered on her honeymoon in South Africa. During the initial investigation, it was proved that the Taxi carrying Anni and her husband Shrien Dewani was hijacked. The hijackers Mziwamadoda Qwabe and Xolile Mngeni along with the hotel receptionist Monde Mbolombo and taxi driver Zola Tongo were arrested for their direct and indirect involvement in the case. They confirmed their crime, intending to kidnap and rob the victims but unintentionally fatally hurt one of them. On 12th November, the couple met their driver Zola Tongo, who took them to the five-star Cape Grace hotel.
On 13th November, they engaged with Tongo once again, to drive through the city in the Volkswagen Sharan to reach Gugulethu. After having a meal at a restaurant called Mzolis, they drove to their destination. They were hijacked on the way by two armed men, Mziwamadoda Qwabe and Xolile Mngeni. They robbed Shrien of his money, wallet, watch and mobile which were expensive. They released him after covering a 20 minute distance where Shrien found help and contacted the police. On 14th November at 7:50, Anni was found dead in the back of a taxi in Lingelethu West. She had a gunshot wound in her neck and the police confirmed Anni’s Armani wristwatch, her handbag, a white-gold and diamond bracelet along with her mobile phone were missing. This led them to thinking this was a fatal robbery.
