Short Drop

Short Drop

Bartholomew, a retired civil servant, takes a leisurely drive downtown, where Shanice mistakes his car for a taxi. After much resistance, he agrees to take her to her destination. Along the way, they encounter a wide diversity of Trinidadian characters, from cross-dresser Hott Pepper to gang member Tan Tan. What follows is a long day of reckoning with memories, friendships and revelations.
