Joe Gallo, ride-share driver, happily married. He’s ready to move on to the next phase of his life with his wife of many years, away from the stress and anxiety of South Florida. That all changes when a driver injures him, and a violent assault on his wife, leaves her brain dead. The final straw comes amid a hail of false accusations from passengers, causing him to lose his income. These are the catalysts which open the door to his past, allowing his demons, which have been locked away for 30 years, to escape. The ride-share industry destroyed his life, now, he was going to return the favor, one ride request at a time

Johnny Dangle, gruff and sarcastic cop from New York, transplanted to the Sheriff’s department in South Florida. When drivers and passengers begin showing up dead on the streets of South Florida, it’s up to him to find out why. With the help of CSI Tommy D’amasi (Toenail Tommy) and Coroner Andrea Mitchell they discover the dark world of the ride-share industry.

Jennifer Atwood, single, attractive, unhappy with her job working as a social media reporter for WDCK News in Miami. She sees the murders as a way up the ladder of success and out of her social media hellhole.

The murders allow Dangle and Atwood hook up in more ways than one while trying to stop them. But Joe Gallo’s determination to make the ride-share industry pay for all they’ve stolen, may prove too much, leading to a climatic bloody end for them all.
