After a horrible day, losing his teaching job and having a nasty accident, Jos Tax wakes up in hospital. Minus his right leg. The doctor contends he had no other option but to amputate Jos’ leg. Still, Jos wants his leg back. He wants to pay his last respects to his loyal subject by turning it into a lamp. Robbie, one of Jos’ former pupils who has a bed in the same room, is the only person who seems to understand him. In this TV drama, the now one-legged Jos insists on turning his unusual idea into reality.
