JW is a brilliant student who is studying economics at Stockholm University. However, his financial situation is dire, and he is living a double life to maintain his expensive lifestyle.

JW is fascinated by the flashy and fast-paced lifestyle of the wealthy and elite members of society. In an attempt to join this exclusive world, he starts working as a taxi driver for a company that caters to the high-end clientele of the city. In this job, JW sees a unique opportunity to make connections and expand his network.

His life takes an unexpected turn when he meets Jorge (Matias Varela), an escaped convict who is on the run from a vicious Serbian mafia boss, Mrado (Dragomir Mrsic). Jorge contacts JW to help him launder his money, and JW is quickly drawn into the world of organized crime.

As JW becomes more involved with Jorge and his criminal activities, he finds himself in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. He soon realizes that his double life is becoming too complicated to manage, and he must confront the choices he has made.
