A cab driver taken hostage by a contract killer must work to save his own life and that of the murderer's last intended victim.

ABSTRACT
Los Angeles cab driver Max Durocher, a capable yet emotionally-troubled man blessed with the gift of gab, picks up a peculiar fare by the name of Vincent one fateful evening. The smartly-dressed man offers Max a hefty sum of money in exchange for his being driven to a series of stops as his only fare that night; after the first stop, Max learns that he is a contract killer sent out to perform a number of hits. Forced to continue driving Vincent as his chauffeur/hostage for fear of a grisly demise, Max must devise a way to save his life and that of Vincent's final target before time runs out.
