Synopsis

A young ambitious lawyer is ready to take on the world… One night, a woman taxi driver comes to his office, tells him that she had been raped in her car and that she wants to find the rapist. Not only is he excited about his first case, he also finds himself intrigued by this woman. Following the clues she provided, the lawyer always receives the same answer : “I saw him, but he just left”. The lawyer continues to question the driver and every time he does so, there is something wrong with his recorder. The lawyer often goes to a barber shop because of his attraction to the young and fresh beauty of the hairdresser, to whom he promises protection. Late one night, the taxi driver invites the lawyer to her home, and, for the first time, he sees the “real” her, but he cannot even begin to imagine what kind of person she is. Late another night, the lawyer receives a call from the police station. The hairdresser has been arrested for prostitution.
