Parts & Labor, Pulse Films and ManDown Pictures produced, the project was co-developed by Film 4 and jointly financed by Maven Pictures’ new film fund, BFI and Film 4.
A24 is planning a release in the second half of 2016. Protagonist Pictures is handling the film’s international sales.
The film follows a teenage girl with nothing to lose as she joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she criss-crosses the Midwest with a band of misfits.
