99 is an original story inspired by real events. It is as much "what could have been" as it is "what really happened." In other words,it is historical fiction - fiction being the keyword. It spans a few genres, it is slick, fast-paced, realistic and, importantly, very funny. In this "smart comedy" set in 1999, all the characters are bound by a common feeling of being stuck at 99 in life - just one short of a 'century'- that elusive thing called "making it" in life! 99 is an unpredictable and hilarious ride spread over two cities with colourful characters, unbelievable circumstances, small-time crooks, big-time conspiracies, fateful car crashes, loads of coffee, a briefcase full of money, a budding romance... ...and a historical controversy brewing in the background!
