The story is set in the aftermath of the Nigerian civil war. The character's way of living is based upon survival, making a living. Jonathan Iwegbu turns the one thing he has left (his bicycle) into a money making machine. He uses what he has to survive in a place where there is little left. In the end, he spends his time counting blessings rather than feeling sorry for himself.
