In the first moment of the film, we find ourselves inside a cab driven by Solo, a Senegalese taxi driver living in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. His passenger is seventy-year-old William, who books Solo to pick him up again two weeks hence for a long drive to a faraway mountaintop. Over the course of their negotiation, Solo comes to understand that William has a tragic plan for the end of his trip, and decides to befriend the man and dissuade him from following through with his goal.
