ONLINE RUMOURS. REAL LIFE TROUBLE.
Ola Olajide, a high-profile journalist, is marrying the love of her life in one month's time. Young, beautiful, successful â€“ she and her fiancÃ© Michael seem to have it all.
That is, until one morning when they both wake up to the same message:
â€˜Oh my god, have you seen The List?â€™
It began as a list of anonymous allegations about abusive men. Now it has been published online. Ola made her name breaking exactly this type of story. She would usually be the first to cover it, calling for the men to be fired. Except today, Michaelâ€™s name is on there.
With their future on the line, Ola gives Michael an ultimatum to prove his innocence by their wedding day, but will the truth of what happened change everything for both of them?
