Solo (Souleymane Sy Savane) is a cheerful 34 year-old taxi driver from Senegal hoping for a better life in America. But when the hard-edged William (Red West), a 70 year-old white Southerner, enters Solo's cab with an unusual request, this odd couple embarks on a journey that will change them both forever.
From acclaimed director Ramin Bahrani (MAN PUSH CART, CHOP SHOP), comes a powerful story of friendship and forgiveness. With GOODBYE SOLO, Bahrani has created a profoundly uplifting story about an unlikely friendship between two very different men that has been entrancing critics since its debut.
In addition, GOODBYE SOLO has touched the lives of audiences across the country winning the International Critics Prize at the 2008 Venice Film Festival and becoming an Official Selection at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival.
