The city of Thebes is suffering under a devastating pandemic. President Oedipus vows to put an end to the crisis and help restore the city, like he once did before. Upon consulting the Oracle, the solution is clear. Find the murderer of their previous leader, Laius. So begins a manhunt for the city’s most wanted. But as the investigation starts, secrets from the past resurface. 

In a thrilling modern re-telling of the great Sophoclean tragedy, Oedipus, delves deep into how man deals with the fate dealt to us. Who is really in control, the great unknown, or us?
