Some people are stuck in traffic for a living. The documentary Traffic Jam is a peek into what goes on in the minds of two package deliverers who sit in their cars all day long. They speak about their hopes and dreams, their frustrations and fears. In traffic you sit around waiting for the lights to change from red to green. In life, you have to know when, what and how to change.
