Here is the official
Wendy is a fiery Manhattan
author whose husband has just left her for a younger woman; Darwan is a
soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. As
Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, she runs into a barrier common to
many lifelong New Yorkers: she’s never learned to drive. When Wendy hires
Darwan to teach her, her unraveling life and his calm restraint seem like an
awkward fit. But as he shows her how to take control of the wheel, and she
coaches him on how to impress a woman, their unlikely friendship awakens them
to the joy, humor, and love in starting life anew.
