A story about the paths we take to find ourselves and understand our world. However, in this case, the paths overlap. Rideshares & Rope Swings tells the story of Reid and Genevieve, two strangers whose carpooling experience gives new perspective on their destination.
Genevieve: Young woman, early 20s. She is travelling home under troubling circumstances. What she may find upon arrival haunts her over the course of the trip. She is reserved yet outgoing, adventurous, persuasive, and fairly sentimental.
