Road raging seems like a very natural reaction when driving. The film Unhinged shows how road-raging does not help and just how dangerous it can be if you are in the wrong place and the wrong time. A mother is on a rush to take her son to school and when a distracted driver in front of her does not go on a green light, she furiously blew the horn as she drives past him. The man asked for her apology and when he did not get it, he follows them. This thriller film will take you on the journey that will have you on the edge of your sit and making you re-think how you handle your rage on the road. The film not only reminds you to be humble and forgiving on the road, but also to be strong, never give up, and have courage to fight to survive.
