In theaters January 18, LUV follows 11-year-old Woody (Rainey Jr.), a timid Baltimore orphan who jumps at the opportunity to join his uncle Vincent (Common) on a field trip of life lessons. A street hustler and former drug dealer just released from an 8-year-stint in prison, Vincent is looking to start fresh with his own crab shack restaurant. But when Vincent's denied a bank loan and is tempted to return to his old life and work for a crime boss (Dennis Haysbert), Woody is forced to grow up faster than he expected and choose who his true heroes really are.
