What begins as a friendship turns into a fiercely powerful romance in this heart-wrenching new prison drama from Jon Garcia, the acclaimed writer-director behind The Falls Trilogy. Ruben and Carlos (Ernesto Reyes and Jesse Tayeh) are cellmates. In the beginning, they form something of a mentorship. Though he appears tough as nails, Carlos slowly reveals his tender side to Ruben - and their attraction to one another becomes undeniable. Luz is a stirring, sexy and deeply emotional story of survival - not only for the lives of both lead characters, but for their relationship as it transitions to the world outside of their cell. Were Ruben and Carlos just filling the void of loneliness during lock-up, or were they truly locked in love?
