Last Cab To Darwin

By Reg Cribb and Jeremy Sims

release in Australia August 2015

To live your life, you've got the learn to share it first...

Rex, a Broken Hill cab driver, has spent his life avoiding getting close to people. One day, he discovers he is dying of stomach cancer. He doesn't want to be forced to rely on anyone so he decides to leave his home and drive alone the 3000 kms across the continent to Darwin, where the recently passed euthanasia laws lead him to believe he can be in control of his own death. On this epic journey he does things and meets people who force him to re-evaluate his life.
