A favorite of the Canadian film festival circuit and directorial debut for up-and-coming director Caley Wilson, Luba is a timely and relatable domestic drama with a finale as grand as any Hollywood “big-bucks” thriller. It tells the story of Luba (Nicole Maroon) a mother who, after her ex-husband's secret drug addiction lands him in prison, is forced to scrape together a life for herself and her newborn son. Six years later, with bills piling up and no one else to depend on, Luba is relieved when Donnie (Vladimir Jon Cubrt of Hannibal and Designated Survivor) is recovering and back in their son's life. But when he relapses and spirals out of control, Luba is forced into the fight of her life. Exploring the challenges of co-parenting with an addict, this pragmatic drama is topped off with a ticking time bomb finish you won’t soon forget. IN PERSON: Actor Nicole Maroon and Producer/Writer Vladmir Jon Cubrt.
