London bus driver Josh West heads to Manila, the capital of the Philippines and the most densely populated city on the planet. Josh will be driving a Jeepney, a colorfully decorated, adapted jeep which has no power steering, dodgy lights and an uncomfortable seat. His host is Rogelio Castro and together they brave the chaos of the streets. It's a hair- raising and often hilarious ride, but Josh also learns about the incredible over-crowding and devastating poverty of Manila. He forms a strong bond with Rogelio and is moved by the daily struggle of an ordinary Filipino working to feed his family. It's an emotional rollercoaster and Josh returns a changed man, aware that all the separates his life from Rogelio's is the country he happened to be born in.
