Changing Lanes

Changing Lanes

After a car accident, two men’s lives become intertwined in escalating retaliation.

Overview

If only. If only we could take back that one moment in timethat one actionthat one word. How different things would be. That single snowflake seemed harmless enough until it was the one that tipped the scales in favor of the avalanche. Changing Lanes is a film about if only. Two burdened men have their very different worlds turned upside down as a result of an everyday fender bender on the FDR in New York. The men, as a result, wreak havoc upon each other's lives as they seek revenge. But at the bottom of their downward spiral they both realize their failures.

This study guide will help you discuss the themes of Changing Lanes. What are the consequences of acting out of retaliation rather than patience? How does our integrity, or lack thereof, reap consequences for us and those around us? How can confession lead us toward redemption?
