Munir is an honest taxi driver, known within the local community as being principled and trustworthy, always willing to lend a hand to friends in need. A loving father and husband, Munir is eager to make it home in time after a long day of work to celebrate his daughter’s birthday. But after a mysterious man appears on the side of a dark road, Munir is torn between being a good Samaritan or a good father—a choice that will change his life forever.
