Across the former Soviet Union, anywhere you stop and put out your hand a car will stop and offer to take you on your journey. These impromptu taxis are called 'gypsy cabs' and to many they offer the only way of making a living and keeping above the breadline. Gypsy Cab takes a look at three very different gypsy cab drivers from Russia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. It shows how daily life remains a struggle in the post-Soviet world and the innovative ways people cope with it.
