Taxi driver József Simon is robbed by two elderly lady passengers. In vain does the divorced, debt-ridden man turn to the police, they simply don’t believe him. In his impotence he starts doing his own investigation and quickly comes across the professional thieves. Since he has lost faith in justice being served legally, he sets off on a one-man campaign using increasingly professional methods. In this work Ferenc András placed the Hungarian thriller on new foundations and his influence is apparent in nearly all thrillers made since.
