Watch: A Cab Driver’s Fate Takes a Sweet, Selfless Trip in ‘Detour’

By  · Published on April 30th, 2012

Why Watch? Call it sugary, call it a little schmaltzy, but there’s a lot to love about Takashi Doscher’s new short film that focuses on a very lucky cab driver who wins tickets to Game 7 of the World Series and his last client of the day.

Slickly shot with as much heart as humor, it overcomes a general Aw Shucks vibe with a loveable comedic lug in star Ted Huckabee and stands as further proof that Doscher is a talent to watch out for.

What will it cost? Only 8 minutes.
