On a nice Fall day, Ernest Chapel picks up a stranger in his cab. The conversation takes a turn towards the inevitable death that awaits us all. Will there be a suicide in Ernest’s cab on the trip to the graveyard? The stranger doesn’t seem the type, with his pleasant demeanor.
After a near brush with his own death in an accident, Ernest later picks up another fare. The good natured lady wants Ernest to drive faster in taking her to the graveyard, but he has no desires for run ins with the law. Does this lady have a death wish as well? Did Ernest misunderstand her comment on death, and the fact it comes to all of us? Why all the rush to the graveyard? Will there be another accident involving his cab?
The whole matter unnerves Ernest, and after taking 3 weeks off, his first fare is an inspector. Will Ernest be in danger of losing his license? When the inspector demands to be taken to the graveyard, will he wind up dead as well? What kind of inspector is this new passenger? Ernest may soon discover the connection between the rides to the graveyard, his cab, and his own future.
