WORLD PREMIERE Vinod, Gurpreet and Akash, born and raised within a hundred miles of each other in Punjab (India), arrived in the United States of America a decade apart with no intentions of driving a cab. But in 2018, their lives converged at a taxi school in Jackson Heights. With the school serving as a nucleus that binds their stories together, the film attempts to weave together three distinct immigration experiences and the events that motivated their decision to become cab drivers in New York.
