Middle of Nowhere

When her husband is sentenced to eight years in prison, Ruby, a nurse, drops out of medical school in order to better focus on his well-being and to help him get early parole. This leads to tensions in Ruby’s relationship with her mother, Ruth, and sister, Rosie, a single mom. When she meets the handsome, sensitive Brian, Ruby is confronted with new challenges and desires, and finds herself reconsidering the path she has chosen.
