Dave is a young free-lance designer who speaks about himself in the streets of Cape Town: he speaks about his dreams, his city, his catfish, his cactuses, his main feature: he has monkey feet which, though can be used to climb everywhere, represent a psychological problem for him. In the lift, he meets a person with South American features and decides to break the silence. But the other guy gets nervous and accuses him of racism. After that, Dave sees the Mexican leaving the building and so decides to take advantage of the situation and enter his flat, thanks to his monkey feet. The neighbour’s flat is full of toads.
