Filmed entirely inside a moving car over three days, Fare is a dramatic thriller about a cab driver who finds himself transporting the man who is secretly sleeping with his wife. Blurring the lines of tone and genre, Fare explores the darkest depths of love, betrayal and the fight for a committed relationship.
Ride-share cab driver Eric begins his day like any other, responding to the many fares who hail him from their smartphones throughout the city. Hiding his depression due to a marriage that has long since grown cold, Eric entertains small talk and discusses his “real job” of real estate. He even finds his own notions of love and marriage challenged by one fare in particular – a foreign man whose elusive ramblings seem to light the fire of Eric’s own self-reflection.
When Eric’s day turns to night and he takes the evening’s last fare, Eric finds himself face to face with the source of his troubles. Eric’s unsuspecting passenger is a man named Patrick who doesn’t know this cab driver from any other. But when Eric recognizes Patrick as the man who is secretly sleeping with his wife, a series of events are set in motion which threaten the lives of everyone who sets foot inside the car.
