Short Narrative

“Pool is a beautiful game played by ugly people.”

Brought to you from a multi award winning team with cinematography by world renowned Mikhail Krichman (Leviathan, Silent Souls, Miss Julie), The Ruby Lion is the story of not only the unresolved conflict between a father and son, but the purification of ones soul in purgatory. 

‘Having never lost a game of pool in over twenty years, a retired world 9-Ball Champion, Reuben “Ruby Howard” finally faces a worthy opponent. But the eerily persistent challenger confronts the legends love for the game, resulting in the ultimate sacrifice.’
