Oshun, the Yoruba Goddess of Love, gives cosmetics queen Alix Morton a gift that will rock the industry. Advertising executive Angel Zimmerman tries not to fall in love with Marc Dupre, a musician fifteen years her junior, while Brent Lockwood her business partner can't decide whether he's gay or just a little bit bi. When these mere mortals meet up with Oshun and her fellow deities - Eleggua, Chango and Oya - African magic mixes with the fast-paced world of fashion, glamour and image making.
