Learning how to drive can be hard enough, but try taking what you’ve already learned and assimilated over years of driving in your own country, and unlearning that in order to grasp the driving dos and don’ts in another land. This comical yet insightful doc follows three people making the attempt at learning to drive in foreign countries. Each of them will, through the challenges and triumphs posed in their driving lessons, learn more about themselves and their new surroundings… provided they can keep their cars on the right side of the road.
