    Ladi Emeruwa as Eddie Carter and Isabella Storm as Felicity


Driving a Black Cab night after night is a quiet and simple life for Eddie Carter. His only friend is Rachel, and both she and Eddie are wrestling with loneliness and uncertainty over handling their obligatory relationship.
When Eddie’s daytime sleep schedule is disturbed by construction work, he finds his nighttime exhaustion setting in. After pulling over for a break one night, he awakens to a terrifying situation: ahead of his cab is the body of a murdered woman.
After this gruesome discovery and reporting it to the police, the sight and Eddie's tiredness haunt him. The following night he awakens from a dream of the murder scene to find that he has started sleepwalking again, a condition he suffered from as a child. Panic creeps in as he realises that there is a chance he may have been involved in the woman’s murder.
In an effort to clear his conscience, Eddie starts to investigate the murder on his own. With the help of his customer, investigative journalist Adam Blomfield, and high-end escort Karli as a window into the underground world of London’s sex industry, Eddie soon finds himself immersed in the murky depths of a city he’s been blindly driving through for years.
