Malcolm Phillips is an Auckland City Taxi Driver, he's working late this evening, more to avoid an arduous anniversary dinner with his wife than because he needs the money. Malcolm's shift is proceeding as it always does, until suddenly the passenger that he's just picked up grabs his attention. A man dressed in black... A magician from an old TV show? Thinking he recognizes the passenger, Malcolm requests a magic trick. His passenger obliges, but as the magic continues it's clear something else is going on here, but where is this leading and who is in control? This is one night that Malcolm will never forget.
