Just as South Africa beings major social and political change with the release of Nelson Mandela from prison and official recognition of the African National Congress, a frustrated middle-aged white man in the country gets an unexpected windfall after a gambling tip pays off. He uses some of the cash to purchase a taxi, and proceeds to smash its windshield in order to get revenge for all the nightmares those vehicles caused him during his years of commuting. However, when the taxi provides a very unexpected response, the man's life takes an unusual turn.
