Comprising of ‘Amazing Grace‘, ‘Your Cup of Tea‘ and lastly, ‘Ink, Piss & Blood‘, the series is centred on the story of Akin.

According to the producers of the series, ‘Akin is an A-list detective and henchman of a notorious dictator who realises that dedication to his duty may cause him more than he bargained. He encounters three political prisoners and in his bid to crack them he comes face to face with his own demons’.
