TAXI TO L.A.
Grief-stricken after her fiancé called off their wedding, Sam (Alexandra Woodward), an impetuous Montréal socialite, impulsively hires Jack (Mark Houghton), a taxi driver with voyeuristic tendencies, to drive her from Montréal to L.A.
The trip is rougher than either would have anticipated. Sam is outraged that truck stops don't serve cappuccino and offended by Jack's hygiene, or lack thereof, while Jack is exasperated by Sam's nagging and her ignorance of the real world. As the mismatched couple makes their way across America, both Sam and Jack's outlooks begin to change and the two develop a rapport.
The journey opens Sam's eyes to life beyond the country club and her exuberance helps crack Jack's cynical and defensive shell. As antagonism gives way to affection, a larger question begins to loom: can the relationship between this odd couple last beyond their eight-day taxi ride to L.A.?
