Short Drop

Bartholomew, a retired civil servant, takes a leisurely drive downtown, where Shanice, mistakes his car for a taxi. After resisting, he agrees to take her to her destination. Along the way, they encounter a diversity of Trinidadian characters, from crossdresser Hott Pepper to gang member Tan Tan. The band of strangers unite through this impromptu taxi ride, fulfilling Bartholomew’s desire for connection.
