An ordinary cross country trip with a driver and her dog becomes an odyssey.

Summary

A quirky and fun, sometimes overly serious and introspective “Driver” played by Mare Costello is in the middle of nowhere and somewhere.  Our journey begins when a gratitude list reveals dissatisfaction, frustration and hopelessness.  We are then catapulted into a cross country ride where the “Driver” and her bouncy, Terrier mix rescue dog “Dog” played by newcomer Skittles, join forces to get to a place of enlightenment by way of bazaar introspection, wild twists, beautiful vistas and humor.

The 10th RIDE will be shot in an improvised and minimalist fashion without a script, casting while in transit, and filmed in stark beautiful black and white with music to suit.  Footage from nine other cross country trips will be utilized in this adventure, as this will be Costello's 10th ride across the United States. 

We hope to  capture the heart and soul of our audience, transporting them into a altered reality of optimism and wonder which lingers for days.  We hope our “Driver’s” spirit and determination to get out of a soul rut, pack up and dive into the unknown is transformative.  We hope that the relationship between the “Driver” and “Dog” illuminates the importance of the human and canine connection.
