Medical transport driver Vic is late, but it’s not his fault. Roads are closed for a protest, and no one else can shuttle his Russian grandfather and émigré friends to a funeral. The new route uproots his scheduled clients, particularly Tracy, a vibrant young woman with ALS. As the day goes from hectic to off-the-rails, their collective ride becomes a hilarious, compassionate, and overlapping portrait of American dreams and disenchantment.

“Those who demand at least a modicum of originality in exchange for their entertainment dollar won’t be shortchanged by this divinely chaotic comedy.”
– Scott Marks, SAN DIEGO READER

“GIVE ME LIBERTY is a full-blown farce on wheels, a master class in controlled, escalating chaos.” – Justin Chang, LOS ANGELES TIMES

“This film is tremendous…What it pulls off is a little miracle.” – Christy Lemire, FILMWEEK

“At once breakneck and tolerant, GIVE ME LIBERTY manages to be both rousingly Russian and touchingly all-American.” – Anthony Lane, NEW YORKER

“GIVE ME LIBERTY is a must see. Take some friends. Spread the word.”
– Carl Kozlowski, PASADENA WEEKLY

“It’s a ride that opens the door to a diverse and important community. With wonderfully raw and absorbing performances, this small tale is a rare treat.” – Janet Lee, FILM INQUIRY
