John Smith has been happily involved in a bigamist marriage for five years. He lives with Michelle in Stockwell and Stephanie in Finsbury. Fortunately, for John, he's a Taxi Driver which involves varying shift work! Simple? Well, when the Stockwell and Finsbury police forces discover something suspicious in their paperwork, John's happy bubble is about to be burst.

The action of the movie takes place during the next hectic 24 hours as John with the assistance of his gullible neighbour, Gary, rush between Stockwell and Finsbury attempting to thwart the police and prevent the two loving wives coming face to face!
