About the film[]

The film was premiered at the Flanders Film Festival between 5 and 16 October 1999.

Barbara Hershev stars in the film as Kate Burns, who has just left her husband and been fired from her job. However, although she has cast off the things that she thought were dragging her down, Kate still feels depressed and jumps into a cab on impulse. She gave the driver instructions to take her to the airport, but when they arrive, she tells the man to keep going.

Eventually she and the driver, Darshan, realise that they have similar problems and end up driving across the USA, talking and trying to face their pasts.
