Summary
  • A feel-good, coming of (middle) age comedy about a mismatched pair who helps each other overcome life's road blocks
  • Wendy is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for another woman; Darwan is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, but as a lifelong New Yorker, she's never learned to drive -- so she hires the calm, restrained Darwan to teach her. As Darwan shows her how to take control of the wheel, Wendy coaches him on how to impress a woman, and their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humor, and love in starting life anew.--Container
