However, his career is being threatened by the appearance of a new technology – Udog – a phone application that helps connecting dog owners and dog walkers who work for Udog.

Director Statement

Since the day tech-taxi appeared in Vietnam, many traditional taxi-drivers who have old-age have lost their jobs. The new industry has brought convenience to the customers, but not to the workers who are left behind. Because of old-age, they can't adapt to the new tech-taxi driving. Some couldn't even afford a smartphone. They started to lose the customers and income. Some changed to work from midnight to morning to avoid their high-tech competitors. Many have shown violent encounters with tech-taxi drivers. They have no way out but to fight with their very last resort. Sadly this is inevitable, and the government couldn't do much for them. This film is a story about them, but with a more optimistic mind.
