A young arrogant executive, who recently signed a multimillion dollar contract, races through the countryside in his fancy sports car. In a moment of conceited self-praise, he loses control of the vehicle and gets a flat tire. As he has no tool to change the tire, he decides to walk to an old friend’s home to seek assistance.
