According to a press release seen by the magazine, the film will follow "a brilliant former music executive who grapples with whether to go public with her story of assault by a notable figure in the music industry." The project, which is untitled and does not yet have a release date, is billed as "a profound examination of race, gender, class, and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large.”

The film will be produced and co-directed by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering. The pair previously worked together on the Oscar-nominated The Hunting Ground, an examination of sexual assault on college campuses, and The Invisible War, which looked at gender-based violence in the military.
