Joel Goodman (Rick Hearst from General Hospital) is a hotshot ad exec angling for a promotion. But he feels stuck - not least of all in traffic. The solution to this problem comes from a place he would've never expected: a homeless man (Anthony Geary from General Hospital). Joel pays him to join his daily work commute so he can use the carpool lane and cut down his travel time. The two end up forming an unexpected bond, with Joel realizing that sometimes changing lanes can change your life.
