How I Learned to Drive, which premiered in 1997, was a pioneering drama for its examination of pedophilia and sexual abouse of women. It is a reflection show that follows a young woman from age 11 to 18 and her friendship and sexual affair with her uncle. Together they travel to the darkest, most intimated and unspoken place of their 7-year relationship. Set in the 1960s and 70s, the sotry is defined by driving lessons that extend well beyond learning to the rules of the road.
