Taxi, an Encounter
A professional thief has to decide if doing the right thing for a stranger is worth the possibility of a long prison sentence in this comedy-drama from Argentina. While most car thieves are eager to get rid of their evidence as quickly as possible, Esteban (Diego Peretti) is different -- he steals automobiles for a fence who then breaks down the vehicles and sells the parts, but he has a weakness for swiping taxicabs, and before turning them over to his partners, he likes to pick up a fare or two and talk with the passengers. One day, Esteban rips off another cab and picks up Laura (Josefina Viton), who needs a ride. However, Esteban soon finds out he hasn't picked up a typical customer -- Laura has just been shot and needs to go to a hospital. While Esteban is sympathetic, he knows taking her to a hospital will lead to questions from the police that could land him in jail. Will Esteban help a stranger in need, or look out for his own affairs instead? ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
