Max is a cab driver. For twelve years, faces have come and gone from his rear-view mirror: people and places he has long since forgotten--until tonight. When a drug cartel learns of their impending indictment by a federal grand jury, they mount an operation to identify and kill the key witness. Vincent is a contract killer. He has one night in L.A.--and five bodies are supposed to fall. Vincent hijacks Max and his cab, making Max collateral--an expendable person who is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Through the night, Vincent forces Max to drive him to each assigned destination, as the L.A.P.D. and F.B.I. race to intercept them. Max and Vincent become dependent on each other, in ways neither would have imagined.
