Synopsis

On a hot afternoon in the middle of nowhere, Martin is a beleaguered hitchhiker who hasn’t seen a car all day. He finally gets a break, only to discover the ride isn’t as straightforward as it seems. The driver won’t let Martin in the car until she’s absolutely sure he’s “safe.” Little does Martin know that this will take a while… Two worlds collide in this comedy about what it means to help someone out.
