Eleven-year-old WOODY WATSON is a timid Baltimore orphan who dreams of a better life — and his absent mother who may or may not be in North Carolina fighting . Woody also reveres his uncle VINCENT as the he never had. A street hustler and former drug dealer, Vincent's fresh off an eight-year stint in prison and wants a new direction.

When Vincent bypasses his nephew's school one day and offers to show Woody how a man handles his business, Woody jumps at the opportunity to join his uncle on a field trip of life lessons.

THE MAKING OF LUV

As told by director Sheldon Candis
Everybody searches for a father figure… Not every boy finds the right one…

Durig my childhood in Baltimore, I spent late nights riding shotgun in my uncle's car. I was a 9-year-old kid excited to be hanging out with my hero. Even at this young age I was well aware of the murmurs within my family that suggested he was a well-respected drug dealer and his reputation was infamous throughout the city streets. During many of these late night rides, he would explain to me what it takes to be a man. LUV is a fictional tale inspired by this relationship.

For me the filmmaker, my concern is foremost to tell a compelling fictional story that exploresr the human condition. In terms of storytelling it's exploring my childhood existence. What if a trusted adult was engaged in illegal activity? What if I was with him when these things happened? How does a child handle violence for the first time? How does a boy react when he is exposed to murder at close range?

A dramatic film with subtle thriller undertones, the most compelling aspect of LUV is experiencing a young boy's rite of passage in the course of one day through his crumbling relationship with his flawed uncle. Vincent is a conflicted individual, a man who finds himself constantly torn between the love of his nephew Woody and the relentless pursuit of his dream. crumbling relationship with his flawed uncle.
