The Lonely Diner
By Beverley Cooper
Directed by Kelli Fox

In a quiet little rural Canadian diner, Lucy yearns for the glitz, glamour and excitement of America’s roaring cities. Prohibition has just been lifted in Ontario, but across the border mob bosses battle for the illicit trade of alcohol. Lucy’s husband, Ron, and her daughter, Sylvia, seem content to live their quiet life, but an infamous gangster - and his stolen whiskey - is about to bring Lucy’s far-off dreams into sharp, dangerous focus at THE LONELY DINER.
