Solo, a Senegalese taxi driver in Winston-Salem, NorthCarolina picks up a 70 year old passenger, William who books him 2 weeks hence, for a ride to a distant mountaintop. During their discourse, Solo realizes that William has a tragic plan for the trip’s end and decides to befriend the man and dissuade him from his goal. Solo displays a remarkable goodness and lacks the North American self-consciousness about relationships. The resulting extraordinary performances fill the screen with a portrait of natural charisma and genuine human kindness.
