“Middle of Nowhere” chronicles a young woman caught between two worlds and two men in the search for herself. Ruby, a bright medical student, sets aside her dreams when her husband
is incarcerated. This new life challenges her to the very core and propels her in new, often frightening directions of self-discovery.
