SYNOPSIS

In 1955 newlyweds Alfred and Jakobine made an epic, 4 year, journey around the world in an old London taxi. When it was over, without warning, Alfred left Jakobine - breaking her heart. Now at 84 years old Alfred Hobbs wants to restore the old taxi, drive it across America with their son, and offer Jakobine one last ride "before it's too late". 40 years after he left her, she has a deep love/hate regard for Alfred. How will she react to this "gesture" and how will her "new" husband of 30 years handle it?
