After her ex-husband’s secret addiction to crack cocaine lands him in jail, Luba manages to scrape together a life for herself and her newborn son. She strives to turn her life around while juggling a floundering love-life, odd jobs and an uncertain financial future. Six years later, with bills piling up and no one else to depend on, Luba is relieved that Donnie is on the mend and back in their son’s life. But when he relapses and spirals out of control, Luba is thrust into a fight for survival.
