Born in captivity, 5-year-old Jack narrates the story of his life spent in an small room with his mother, whom he calls “Ma.” Jack and Ma are being held hostage by “Old Nick” in “Room,” a place where Ma strives to create a loving and stimulating home for her son under dire circumstances.  Jack’s daily life is filled with games and love, but is overshadowed by fear and questions.  When Ma proposes a means to escape the only life Jack has ever known, the consequences are startling.  Told in a unique voice, Room is a compelling and emotional story of love and survival.
