Nicky is a new mini-cab driver trying to study for the knowledge in his spare time.

His relationship is on the rocks and his life seems out of control.

Charlie is his passenger, a crazy old man who wears an ill-fitting sergeant's battledress jacket and wants to talk about the war.

There's a tube strike, the traffic isn't moving and the two unlikely companions are forced to spend time together.

But as Nicky finds out, Charlie isn't crazy - he's in love.
