Synopsis: A nervous, principled individual must decide whether to intervene and stop a rule breaker on his daily commute from work, or live with a lifetime of regret. Quiet Carriage is a comedy about a passive man and his struggle against his ridiculously overactive imagination. It captures the difficulties faced by all ‘beta-males’ when they are thrown into a situation where they know they should speak up, but will make any excuse to themselves to avoid doing so. This film features a fantastic performance by talented comedy actor Amit Shah.
