A chauffeur collects his passenger to drive him to work in London’s Square Mile.

The journey soon veers off course when the banking executive becomes the target of his driver’s increasingly manic diatribe against capitalist excess, reaching a terrifying climax through the streets of the financial district.

As the car reaches it’s destination the truly startling reality behind this journey is revealed.

Intense and claustrophobic, BACKSEAT DRIVER is a layered and unsettling psychological thriller exploring the self-deceit we perpetrate to justify our life choices.
