A down-and-out, divorced engineer has turned to driving a taxi to make ends meet after he loses his job. On one particular day, he is more miserable than usual because he has a cold. He picks up two old ladies from a funeral who chatter away, and after they leave his cab he eventually finds out they have stolen all the money in his wallet -- on this day, that amounted to his entire life savings. When he goes to the police, they do not believe his story and so the cabbie decides to take matters into his own hands. He figures out where one of the women lives from remembered tidbits of their conversation and goes there, finding the place to be quite a mansion. Incensed that some well-to-do old woman could steal from his small pocket, the cab driver launches into a plan to kidnap the woman's daughter and demand a ransom that will more than pay back what was stolen.
