The great initiation ceremony has just ended, and Tladi (Lightning) is not only chosen leader of his regiment, but given the title of "Great". An unprecedented archievement for someone his age. This breeds resentment among some of his peers especially his main rival Makopela, and whats worse is that the village beauty, Lindiwe, has sole declared herself to Tladi. Following an attempt on the young warrior's life, which almost succeeds, but leaves him grotesquely deformed; a human leopard known as Kahuru emerges. Now will Kahuru quell the campaign of terror launched by the sinister Makopela and his army of outcasts who threaten the very existence of the Bakhudung and other surrounding nations? Find out.
