by Dana Nechushtan

synopsis

When Dennis has the chance of a lifetime to get a very expensive taxi permit, with which he can earn a lot of money, he jumps right at it. He takes out a huge loan under the watchful eye of the director of MOTAX, the only licensed taxi company in Amsterdam. Dennis is beside himself with joy: his days of wheeling and dealing are over.
