Dreading an entire summer of LA public transit, a popular girl (Claudia Sulewski) with a suspended license and a boy next door (Steffan Argus) without a car, strike up an agreement at the bus stop: he will drive her car to get the two of them to work every day for the summer. But what starts as a business agreement between two very different people, slowly starts to become much more.

As defined by the United States Census Bureau, an extreme commute is a daily journey to work that takes more than 90 minutes each way. According to the bureau, about 3% of American adult workers are so-called “extreme” commuters. Not surprisingly, the number of extreme commuters in the New York, Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area, and Los Angeles metropolitan areas is much greater than the national average. Midas sponsored an “America's Longest Commute” award in 2006. The winner, from Mariposa, California, drove a 372 mile roundtrip (about 4½ hours) to and from work in San Jose each day.

A survey over 2,000 British workers by Randstad Holding revealed that 9% of British workers commute for over 90 minutes each way. 7.5% of the Survey's correspondents worked during their commute, with 18% of them believing that smartphones and tablets have made this easier. A BBC article in 2013 highlighted multiple reasons for extreme commutes, including lifestyle choice (living in the country and pursuing a London career), relocation of employers, and people increasing their search area when looking for work after redundancy.
