The series centres on Alofa, a young Pasifika woman climbing the corporate ladder. She constantly bumps up against unconscious bias in the workplace, and must find authentic ways of dealing with it.

This prompts an internal struggle between the part of Alofa that was raised to be humble (faletua), and the part of her that descended from warriors (nafanua).
