Unrequited love, lost opportunities, just earning an honest wage (well, mostly honest wage) and trying to get through the hard shoulder of a thing called life - these are the central themes of Pick Ups.

Each episode reveals a self-contained tale or two from the backseat tippers and dippers of the after hours city, as well as unravelling a little more of the life stories of the bantering drivers and their long-suffering receptionist, Lind.
