This is a 2005 psychological thriller written and directed by Jeff Stanzler.
Ashade, a New York City taxicab driver from Syria, encounters a strange fare in Phoebe, who has suffered from a recent divorce.
Phoebe forces friendship upon Ashade who accepts it very reluctantly.
When she learns of Ashade's family's legal problems, she imposes upon him further.
This imposition reveals a dangerous side to Phoebe, causing Ashade to flee their brief friendship.
Phoebe retaliates in spite, turning Ashade's life upside-down.
In order to put his life back in order, Ashade must seek out Phoebe and enlist her help, and in doing so, he learns about and falls prey to her dark secret.
After all, it is such a disgusting and heart-breaking tale that you would wish not to see this flick at all if you knew the story in advance.

A deranged woman uses the muslim immigrants to satisfy her own psychotic needs, and she succeeds. End of story. Huh? I was not entertained. I was not amused. Movie did not get me thinking. There was no valuable insight to be had. It did not raise any discussion points. It did not right any injustice. And it did not shine light on any ignored social issues. Really, the movie should not have been made.

Asking "HAS THE DUST REALLY SETTLED",,,, the FILM's objective seem to show that, MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS in Western World are very vulnerable to suspicion, discrimination, incrimination, extortion, blackmail & outright murder, even by a DERANGED WOMAN, who has personal GAIN in their unfortunate fateful predicament.

While one can see the cultural shock & despair of the immigrant family, TOO BAD, THE FILM FAILED TO PUSH THE SUBJECT DEEPER than just falling victim to a deranged woman.

GOOD EFFORTS BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE BETTER.
