A married couple have to ask themselves who their son really is after their teacher accuses him of hiding a dark secret.
Married couple Amy (Naomi Watts, 'Birdman') and Peter Edgar (Tim Roth, 'The hateful eight') adopted their son, Luce (Kelvin Harrison Jr., 'Monsters and Men'), from war-torn Eritrea, where he had been raised as a child soldier. After years of therapy and rehabilitation, Luce is now a high-school superstar, considered by his largely white Virginia high school and his white adoptive parents as a model for a disadvantaged young black man turning his life around.
Luce's history teacher, Harriet (Octavia Spencer, 'Hidden Figures'), grows concerned and calls in his parents when she reads a history paper written by Luce in which he argues that violence is a key aspect of decolonisation. Amy and Peter must slowly start to question whether the life they've given Luce is really as full of freedom as they'd hoped in a conflict that threatens to tear their family apart forever.
'Luce' is directed by Julius Onah ('The Girl Is in Trouble') and is based on the play by J.C. Lee ('Looking').
