Set in the town of Akure, a small settlement in Nigeria, four brothers, Ikenna, Objo, Obembe and the narrator, Ben, use their father’s absence from the family home to go fishing with some friends at a local river, a place of ill-repute. Dubbing themselves ‘Fishermen’, their trips prove to be a source of great enjoyment until on one occasion they mix paths with the notorious local madman. The man offers a prophecy, concerning the oldest brother, Ikenna, a name that should be unknown to him. Ikenna will die a gruesome death, killed by a fisherman. The ominous prophecy shifts the dynamic of the household irreparably, as tensions run high and emotions consume the foundations of their brotherhood. The words uttered by the madman have greater consequences than any could imagine.
