Magdy is a quiet, unassuming taxi driver with nondescript features and no close associates. When Magdy's wife becomes seriously ill, all of Magdy's piteous earnings go to the escalating health costs of keeping her alive. Life presents unexpected opportunities and for Magdy hope arrives in the guise of the notorious Safwat, a corrupt lawyer. He offers Magdy a chance to earn enough money to not only pay for the surgery, but also the means to have a decent living. All Magdy has to do is agree to kill Jalal, the well-known left-wing writer who is known for his anti-Islamic views.
