Eleanor Bennett won't let her secrets die with her.
When Eleanor's estranged children Benny and Byron reunite for her funeral, they receive an unexpected inheritance. First, a traditional Caribbean black cake, to remind them of their roots. Second, the story of a decades-old murder that shatters everything they thought they knew about their mother.
But as Benny and Byron unravel their family's troubled past, will the truth push them further apart?
Or will it reunite them and fulfil Eleanor's final wish?
