Synopsis

Benjo is a simple barber in an unnamed town. When his barber shop becomes a casualty of the local government’s road widening project, Benjo has had enough of being helpless and at the mercy of the powers that be. Sick of being an inconsequential cog in an unbeatable and corrupt system, Benjo becomes a barber for the governor, but in reality serves as his “bagman”-a wheeling, dealing agent that handles all sorts of corrupt and illegal transactions for his boss. As he jumps from one transaction after the other, he gets entangled in a dangerous web of crime, corruption and double crossing in every political and societal institution that he gets into. And as he is sucked into this intoxicating and deadly game of lies, deceit and power struggle, he decides that he must move out of the shadows, use his acquired skill set, and conquer the ladder of power.
