The series stars Ama Qamata as Khumalo, an intelligent, proactive and impulsive teen on a mission to find her sister; Khosi Ngema plays Fikile "Fiks" Bhele; Thabang Molaba as Karabo' KB' Molapo; Puleng's ally and assistant investigator Wade, played by Dillon Windvogel; and the opinionated Wendy Dlamini played by Natasha Thahane.
