Before her triumphs with the Academy Award–nominated Selma and 13th, Ava DuVernay made her mark on the American indie scene with her elegant and emotionally complex second feature, which also co-stars her Selma lead David Oyelowo. Ruby (Emayatzy Corinealdi) is a young woman whose life revolves around her imprisoned husband, who is serving an eight-year sentence for an unspecified crime. As the sacrifices Ruby has made begin to take their toll on her, a chance encounter with a gentle bus driver (Oyelowo) — and the revelation of a shocking betrayal — forces Ruby to confront the choices she has made, and find the possibility of reclaiming the life she nearly let slip away.
