ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Middle of Nowhere. Ruby, a young 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.
