The project, written by Rockwell, follows unapologetic and free-spirited Ines, who convinced that it is one last, necessary crime on the path to redemption, kidnaps six-year-old Terry from the foster care system. Holding onto their secret and each other, mother and son set out to reclaim their home, their identity, and stability in a rapidly changing New York City. Casting has yet to be set. Focus is releasing the movie stateside and via Universal abroad. Production is to begin next year.
