"A story is never a lie." So Ruzummy instructs the beggars and cons whom he chauffeurs around the city of Bnei Brak. With a list of the rich, lonely, and gullible in his pocket, Ruzummy is a driver who takes his clients to these potential marks in exchange for half of what they collect. He gathers stories, encouraging everyone to tell theirs as a way o hiding his own. Ruzummy is raising his daughter Chani alone. His driving forces him to leave her at night. Chani hates this, and one night demands her father bring her along to work. While dealing with the down-and-out, the hucksters, and the schemers, Driver becomes a warm and oddly beautiful tale of a father and daughter making their way against a world that has tried to beat them down. It may break your heart a little, but it will quickly fill the crack with tenderness and hope.
