The Screen Guide

Young Spider McCall is an ambulance driver with 'attitude'. Recently resigned, his final assignment is to drive an elderly patient from a hospital in Sydney to her son's farm in the country. It's a long journey and Spider isn't about to miss his own farewell party. Sure enough, when the nurse wheels the old lady towards Spider's ambulance, his fears are confirmed. This could be one long trip!
