Germany German (Deutsch)

Daniel, ein leidenschaftlicher Taxifahrer, betrachtet die Straßen Marseilles als seine persönliche Rennstrecke. Emilien, ein kleiner Polizist, der schon achtmal durch die Führerscheinprüfung gefallen ist, erwischt ihn bei Tempo 200 und wittert seine große Chance. Mit Daniel als Fahrer könnte er die berüchtigte Mercedes-Gang dingfest machen, eine deutsche Bankräuber-Bande, die den französischen Behörden seit Monaten Kopfzerbrechen bereitet. Da er keine Wahl hat – ein Nein würde die Taxi-Lizenz kosten – geht Daniel auf den Deal ein.
