A cab driver finds himself the hostage of an engaging contract killer as he makes his rounds from hit to hit during one night in Los Angeles. He must find a way to save both himself and one last victim.
Okwe, a kind-hearted Nigerian physician, and Senay, a Turkish chambermaid, work at the same West London hotel, a locus of drug dealing and prostitution run by Senor Sneaky. When Okwe discovers a human heart blocking a toilet in a just-vacated room, he uncovers something far more sinister than just a common crime. Written by

While I might agree that the movie appears 'preachy' compared with typical Hollywood crap which is incapable of analysis, this movie portrays non-Americans in a non-American world. It is subtle, entertaining, excels with its dark humor, and is an accurate portrayal of what immigrants suffer - not only in London, but around the globe.
What on earth prompted the terrorist comment also? Sheesh.
I suggest that this movie deserves deeper reflection, is not preachy like a Michael Moore, and goes about its business subtly and intelligently. A pleasure to watch.
