One night, as Steven plots his next murder, a body drops from the sky and lands on his cab.

Surprising and moving...
27 July 2019 | by talllguysfSee all my reviews

This film might be thought of as a meditation on "fate," but if that's your takeaway, you've missed the entire point. It's actually a journey though the balance of karma. If you're a deep thinker, then this film is for you. Great characters and superb acting and decent Cinematography.
