Thom Col
After getting turned down by a photography agency, Thom finds his landlord throwing all of his belongings out into the hallway. With no job prospects and no place to sleep, Thom must turn to his recurring last resort: driving his illegal taxicab around the streets of New York.

Fortunately for him, Claire Barrow isn't having a good day, either. First she comes home to find her husband flirting with his new secretary, then discovers her estranged father has suffered a heart attack in California. In a frenzy, Claire runs out into the night and hails what she assumes to be a cab. What she gets instead ... is Thom.

With her life in ruins, Claire decides on a whim to pay Thom to drive her out to California. With nothing in New York to call his own, Thom reluctantly agrees.

The path across America takes more than the usual detours, through mountains, barren deserts, and the occasional family reunion. But it's what awaits Thom and Claire in California that forces them to choose between the lives they've left behind, and the possibilities glimpsed along their journey.


Shot on location in thirteen different states and featuring Victor Garber (Titanic, Alias), Cristine Rose (Heroes), Lin Shaye (There's Something About Mary), Bree Turner (The Ugly Truth), Brennan Elliot (Flight 93), and Amber Jaeger (Solitary), Take Me Home isn't your typical ultra-low budget independent film. Writer/director Sam Jaeger (best known for his roles in Parenthood and the film Catch & Release) and an eleven person crew set out in an RV from New York City to capture this magical comedy against the backdrop of the American landscape. Portions of the film were completed in Los Angeles and Big Sur, California, with an expanded community of passionate filmmakers.
