The suspense film follows a young woman named Rachel (Pistorius) who finds herself running from a man (Crowe) with a severe case of road rage. Carl Ellsworth (Disturbia) wrote the script.
“Caren has that magical thing seen in all great actresses, you just believe she’s inhabiting the skin of the character she’s playing.” Crowe told the outlet. “Derrick went through a long casting process that culminated in an old school audition with both of us in the room. She claimed that audition in a definitive way. I know she’s been working a long time and has some great credits, but casting Caren still feels like we’ve made a discovery. It’s exciting.”

The film is gearing up for a third quarter 2020 wide U.S. theatrical release.
