Middle of Nowhere
Directed by Ava DuVernay
2012, Blu-Ray, Color, 97 minutes

LONG: 
Ruby, a young and lonely nurse, makes the drastic decision to drop out of medical school when her husband Derek is incarcerated for eight years. Unquestionably, Ruby dedicates herself to Derek, taking the bus on a regular basis out to the prison where he is being detained. In the process of focusing all her attention on her husband, Ruby goes on a journey of self-discovery, uncovering strength and faithfulness in the darkest of times. Hailed as a “plaintive, slow-boiling, quietly soul-stirring drama” by The New York Times, this powerful film garnered Ava DuVernay the director award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, the first African-American woman to win the prize.
SHORT:
When Ruby’s husband is incarcerated for an eight year term, she makes the unexpected decision to drop out of medical school and tend to his development, taking the bus to the jail frequently to see him and in the process, discovering herself.
