James is a successful comedy writer. He has a good career, nice friends, a cute car and an even cuter girlfriend. Things are going great. There is only one small problem, he lives in Johannesburg and has completely lost his sense of humour.
In the maddest of madcap journeys, James must travel through the highways and byways of Johannesburg trying to find his elusive sense of humour as well as his ability to love and laugh again. In the process, James meets the enchanting, if a little dotty Brenda, who helps him see his city in a new way.
