The series revolves around the main character Kim Do Gi who works as a taxi driver for a company that provides a “revenge-call” service for its customers.

But his life went upside down when a brutal killer took away the life of his mother. When he was having the most miserable days of his life, he was told to join “Rainbow Taxi” by Jang Sung Chul. Well, this taxi company is not an ordinary one; rather it provides opportunity and helps the victims along with their families to take their revenge from the culprits on their way.
The members of the taxi company work in a very different way from police officials and help to extend justice to all their customers. Kang Ha Na who is a prosecutor is fascinated and attracted by the fact and hence inquiries about the company her seniors told her not to do that.
