DRIVER by Nesa Azimi aims to unveil the hidden world of the 3.5 million truck drivers in the United States, shedding light on their daily and existential challenges, illustrating their representative role in the broader working-class struggle for dignity and independence. The documentary explores the transformation of trucking from a once-coveted blue-collar job to one of the most difficult and least-respected trades, attributing this shift to industry deregulation, which has significantly lowered driver wages despite soaring corporate profits.
