After small town waitress Joey (Kiersey Clemons) is sexually assaulted after a date with her old friend Mike (Casey Cott), she befriends mysterious stranger Regina (Alexandra Shipp).

As Joey is drawn further into their chaotic world, Sal’s old flame, Logan County Sheriff Vernon (Luke Hemsworth), investigates MFM, leading to a thrilling showdown. The film will mark Eamon O’Rourke’s directorial debut and is produced by Kiersey Clemons, Lee Broda, Ezra Miller, Luke Daniels with Kevin Beer, Savoy Brummer, Lisa Yaro, Sol Guy, and Seema Thakker executive producing.
