- Synopsis / Plot
- Okwe, an illegal immigrant from Nigeria, is trying hard to make ends meet, using caffeine and potentially harmful stimulants to keep himself from going under. In the evening, he's a minicab driver and sometime clap doctor to the fleet. Overnight, he's the night receptionist in a seedy West London hotel, where call girls are welcomed and even rented by the staff. With no other place to live, Okwe reluctantly shares a shabby flat with Senay, a shy, pretty Turkish asylum-seeker, who works at the same hotel, even though the law forbids her from doing so. One night, Okwe makes a gruesome discovery in one of the rooms..
