synopsis
Ex-con Dame wants nothing more than to leave behind his life of crime. But when he gets into Gowanus Taxi Cab 83, he finds himself in a world of kidnapped Sikhs, Jewish cops, the Black Mafia,a rifle-toting-Oprah-loving drug dealer, and two of the dumbest criminals in Brooklyn. Will Dame have to revert to his old ways in order to save himself in this ridiculous comedy of errors?
