How much does it really cost to take a NYC taxi across the country? Claire Barrow is about to find out. Claire isn't having a good day. First she comes home to find her husband flirting with his new secretary, then she discovers her estranged father has suffered a heart attack in California. In a frenzy, she runs out into the night and hails what she assumes to be a cab. What she gets instead is Thom. Thom isn't having a good day either. After getting turned down by a photo agency, he comes home to find his landlord evicting him. With no job prospects and no place to sleep, he must turn to his recurring last resort: driving his illegal taxicab around the streets of New York. Fortunately for him, Claire decides on a whim to make Thom drive her out to California. With nothing in New York to call his own, Thom reluctantly agrees. It's not too far into their trip when things start to take an unexpected turn in this charming roadtrip romantic comedy.
