Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
The never-say-die attitude of James Flanagan (Philip Bosco) a graying New York taxi driver whose real vocation is playing Shakespeare, underscores the spirit that runs through his life and this standard drama. First infected with the Bard's magic by his father, dead these many years, Flanagan recalls his idyllic visions as a youth. Now he is "trapped" in his taxi, suffers through a broken marriage, has two teenage sons of his own, and not much luck at auditions. Things that go wrong seem to come in clusters, and it is at one such downturn that Flanagan is almost ready to give up.
