You Drive Me Crazy is a dark comedy/thriller about a GPS who takes revenge on a cheating husband. Longer synopsis:A dark comedy thriller, “You Drive Me Crazy” is a cautionary tale about our obsessive reliance on technology. A seemingly ordinary guy, Glen, is driving when his GPS voice gives him directions that don’t quite add up. When he tries to follow his own path, the GPS computer shockingly takes control berating him for some of his life choices. Things go from bad to worse when Glen winds up in the last place he’d ever want to be.
