The film follows lobbyist’s efforts to push through tighter federal laws regulating guns. In the wake of the mass shootings across the country and the headline that revealed that there had been more shootings than days of the year in 2015, the issue of gun violence is a national debate, making the project a hot-button one.

John Madden is set to direct and the film will be distributed by EuropaCorp.
