Nina, a Filipino student, can’t meet her parents’ expectations. An encounter with Sylvain, a former skinhead, sparks a thrilling plan that could change both their lives, but he soon realizes she may not be who she claims to be. Inspired by the real-life tragedy of Jennifer Pan, Markham's “golden child” who ordered a hit on her immigrant parents, LUCKY is a raw and gripping examination of the Asian “model minority” stereotype.

Script developed with the support of Playwrights' Workshop Montreal
