He’s a crime fighter who uses his journalistic skills to bust corruption; specialising in stings and working closely with the police to get criminal convictions. This modern day folk hero keeps his identity hidden from the public and reveals a side of Africa rarely seen: tabloid journalism, high-tech surveillance and high-speed car chases.The film follows Anas and his team the ‘Spice Girls’ – young female reporters – to expose a number of new crimes. Is Anas a journalist, or a vigilante? Just how far is he willing to go to uncover the truth?
