Sameera Junaid Hassan a writer and a journalist was brought up in a family friend’s home after her father, an ex-military officer was disappointed with her birth for not being the son he passionately wished to have. Sameera comes to harm’s way when she published a book The Law of the Jungle which becomes the biggest challenge of the military. Few days after the publication, she goes missing.

New young military officers under the leadership of Brigadier Saleem Sa’ada strikes and overthrows the regime of General Danjuma. The new military regime designs a five year transition programme to bring power to its rightful owners, the democratic government. As the elections approach, a political party-UPP comes to Sameera and lobbies her to accept their presidential ticket. After a protracted race, she wins the seat and becomes an instant political figure in the world. Following her inaugural speech, she intends to actualise her vision of a united economically and politically vibrant African continent as the United States of Africa.
