Hussein is a humble pizza deliveryman who feels continually humiliated by the injustices he sees all around him. When his friend Ali finds a receipt for a stranger's necklace purchase, Hussein is stunned by its exceptionally high cost. He knows that his pitiful salary will never be enough to afford such a luxury.

Soon after, when he and Ali are refused entry to an uptown jewelry store because of their scruffy appearances, his rage over this slight sets off a series of events, which ultimately leads to a shocking act of violence.
