三個城市,三個交錯的故事,富裕與貧窮的相遇。

一位北京的士司機試圖引誘一個富有的乘客;一位香港孕婦開始和家中的印傭成為朋友;一 位雅加達貧民窟的孤兒戀上一個西方來的女遊客。三人各有所追求,但自己卻是最難跨越的障礙。在亞洲,社會流動往往與財富分不開,金錢使他們不再像本來的自己,也難以成為真正的自己。

Taxi Stories is a mosaic film of three stories in three different Asian cities where the paths of the rich and poor cross one another in and around taxis. A closeted Beijing taxi driver tries to seduce a rich passenger, a Hong Kong pregnant trophy wife starts to develop feelings for her new Indonesian maid and a Jakarta slum orphan becomes infatuated with a Western female backpacker. All three characters desperately want to connect on a basic human level but are their own worst obstacle. In a new Asia where social mobility is linked to increasing wealth, money divides and separates each of them making it harder to be who they really are and not what they appear to be.
