Lucky Torres grew up as an orphan in a system that made her feel like a nobody, but she has big dreams of becoming somebody. Masked in tattoos, we find her in her twenties, moving from shelter to shelter, struggling to provide for herself and her young son. With her sister Fantasy as her biggest ally, Lucky survives in a merciless city. We follow her daily grind, meeting various friends and girlfriends along the way. We learn about Lucky's contradictions and how she teeters on a tightrope between dreams and despair.
Lucky is part of the Atlanta Film Festival's Pink Peach Competition; a track of films dedicated to the LGBT community, of which we and our track sponsor are so proud.
