Learning to Drive

Learning to Drive

It's never too late to begin a new adventure.
  • What, me worry?

She is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for a younger woman. He is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. As she sets out to reclaim her independence, she runs into a barrier common to many lifelong New Yorkers: she’s never learned to drive. When she hires him 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, humour, and love in starting life anew.
