Housewives' full story
Housewives is a gripping drama series that follows three women, Akhona, Summer, and Lawrancia, whose lives unexpectedly turn after a drug queen pin kills their husbands. The women are left with the debt of paying back the drug queen for the stolen consignment, and the only way to do it is by working for her and pushing her drugs discreetly.
As they work to pay off the debt, Akhona realises they could become their bosses and succeed in the trade if they ran their syndicate. Her friends are scared, so she decides to go alone and becomes one of the best drug traffickers.
As Akhona becomes more successful, she attracts the attention of Dragon, the drug queen pin who sees her as a threat and an enemy. The two women battle to rule the underworld, but Akhona soon learns that going against Dragon is a fight to the death.
After a close encounter with the cops, Akhona finds refuge in a rundown hotel where she waits for her aide, Raphael. The two have a spark, and it is revealed that Akhona dumped Raphael for Eric, who had more money than he does. Will Akhona succeed in taking down Dragon and become the new boss, or will she meet her demise in the battle?
