The slice-of-life film revolves around the chance meeting of a taxi driver and migrating call center agent in Ortigas, and the events that unfold when the latter leaves his passport in the cab. Inspired by the filmmaker’s various experiences with cab drivers, the film discusses social behavior in urban spaces, and assesses if human interaction is either enhanced or inhibited by architectural and economic geography.
