The Return of the Sun explores the immorality of slavery with partakers offering excuses in support of the brutal practice. The author elicits questions on how to end the practice: by supplanting the captors or forging a new, more inclusive, path.

The islands, home to most African communities, are breeding grounds for pirates who defend against invaders or are out to enslave others.  An African king and slave trader, Jabari, is cruel to neighbouring communities, as a result of which his son and heir to the throne, Shaka, is abducted. Shaka’s mother later flees on account of her husband’s callousness.   

Zola, while searching for her brother, gets abducted by Charlie’s pirates. Charlie falls in love with her, but she promises to marry him when Charlie frees Shaka. Enchanted, Charlie agrees. Shaka leaves, planning to return and save all his people.

Meanwhile, Tendai, a slave who grew up in Jabari’s palace, realizes that the king orphaned him at an early age. He joins Black Caesar, a black pirate focused on ending slavery. Caesar desires to entrench African civilization through the revival of Egyptian civilization. He has an island where he settles freed Africans and maintains a critical attitude towards Shaka who, though perceived as saviour by his people, practices slavery. In a party that paves way for Charlie’s marriage to Zola, Caesar lays siege that portends uncertainties!
