Presented by the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival (GPJFF), this quick-moving, funny, and tender day-in-the-life story takes you on a wild ride through a marginalized America. Vic (Chris Galust), a young, well-meaning Russian-Jewish immigrant and medical transport driver for people with disabilities, is late to work because he just doesn’t know how to say no. Upon discovering his grandfather and a group of elderly Russian neighbors stranded en route to their dear friend’s funeral, Vic reluctantly agrees to drive them, but needs to stop along the way to pick up other passengers – including regulars like Tracy (Lauren “Lolo” Spencer), a young black woman with ALS. With his mother and supervisor hounding him with phone calls, hiccups and detours along the way due to a protest gaining momentum in downtown Milwaukee, Vic’s day surely could not get any worse – or could it?
