The Ride: A Christmas Eve Parable
It’s Christmas Eve in the suburbs of Chicago and a bored, disengaged taxi driver reluctantly accepts one more pickup. The customer asks to be taken to a local bridge and the cabbie soon begins to suspect that his passenger is planning to commit suicide. In an uncharacteristic attempt to help, the cab driver makes excuses to prolong the ride while he attempts to connect with and help his distraught fare. As the night progresses, grace invades the hearts of both the complacent and the desolate.
