Ruby lives in Window Rock, Arizona with her son, Joseph. In order to keep her alcoholism secret, Ruby chooses suffer rather than seek help. On her last day, Ruby faces the inescapable remnants of alcoholism, family, and culture.
In only 10 minutes, this evocative short tells a potent story of psychological volatility, addiction, and shame. Played with bruised emotion by Trini King, the central character battles her last day on earth, reaching out for connection to her family, her culture, and most importantly, to love.
