In a God-fearing small town in 1960s Oklahoma, bespectacled and reclusive teen Iris endures the booze-induced antics of her mother and daily doses of bullying from her classmates. She finds solace in Maggie, the charismatic and enigmatic new girl at school, who hones in on Iris’s untapped potential and coaxes her out of her shell. When Maggie’s mysterious past can no longer be suppressed, the tiny community is thrown into a state of panic, leaving Maggie to take potentially drastic measures and inciting Iris to stand up for her friend and herself. Directed by Martha Stephens. Written by Shannon Bradley-Colleary. Starring Kara Hayward, Liana Liberato, Malin Ackerman, Jordana Spiro. This film hubbed out of Enid, with additional filming in Wakita, Kremlin, Hennessey, Pond Creek, Perry and Bartlesville.
