The South African television drama series, Isono The Sin, is produced by Clive Morris Productions. The drama revolves around the Ndlovu family that resides in Vosloorus, Johannesburg. An adopted son, Gabriel, goes against his criminal mother to save the community from her atrocities. He is entangled in a criminal lifestyle because he was raised in it, and his controlling and narcissistic mother uses the influence she has on him to prevent him from pulling her down.
What is Isono meaning? Isono in English implies sin. It is a Zulu word. In the drama, the transgressions of a mother affect the entire community, including her family, but she cannot bring herself to change her ways. Her traumatic history drives her to do evil things regardless of the consequences.
Isono Bet Africa plot summary
Isono The Sin trailer introduces you to Mary Ndlovu, a devoted Christian and a role model in her society. The church is the most convenient place for her to carry out money laundering, child trafficking, fraud, illegal adoption of children, and other unlawful dealings without anyone suspecting that she is a hardcore criminal.
Her biological daughter, Esther, subjected her career to diminishing because of drug addiction. Mary uses her to seduce her competitors. Her adopted brothers, Gabriel and Simon, are loyal to their mother, and Gabriel is Mary's favourite child.
She pretends to be the community' savoir so that they do not see through her. She is called Mother Mary by the people because she owns House of Grace home in Vosloorus, East Rand of Johannesburg, where she takes care of youths and children who have been neglected by society. Mary's past haunts her, but she overlooks it and does not hesitate to kill anyone who stands in her way. Gabriel commissions himself to end his mother's wicked deeds.
Abednego returns after ten years to Vosloorus when he is all grown. He ran away from the House of Grace when he was a teen, and his childhood romance with Gabriel is revisited. Life has transformed him into a violent and immoral man. Mary uses her children and Abednego as her right-hand men and front-line soldiers to bring down her underhand business rivals.
