Erick has been the family recluse for the past decade. But nobody but him knows why. 10 years ago on his 17th birthday, his life took a harrowing turn when he boarded a taxi. The driver and two accomplices sexually assaulted him. For the then teenager, there would be no police reports. No medical attention. No support groups or counselling. No telling of his family or closest friends.
After feeling broken for a decade, the 27-year-old is now ready to confront his past and to reclaim his future. Would he find the perpetrators? How would his family and friends react to his secrets? What would come of his romantic life? Is he prepared to face the judgment of Mexico’s hypermasculine society?
One Taxi Ride is an observational documentary that tells the intimate story of a male rape survivor. Erick’s innermost thoughts, fears, struggles and triumphs weave a dramatic tale of a man fighting for a future and a life worth living. His journey impacts the world around him in a way that he never saw coming.
