Luce is a psychological thriller based on the play with the same name by director Julius Onah and J.C. Lee. Peter (Tim Roth) and Amy Edgar (Naomi Watts) adopted Luce from Eritrea, when he was a young child. Now, he is a gifted athlete and debater: an all-round poster-boy for the American Dream. But when Luce hands in a paper on colonial violence, his history teacher, Harriet, begins to fear that something dark is brewing underneath the composed surface.
