“It is an honor Whirlybird Director Matt Yuka said, “To join the amazing catalog of Greenwich movies.” “I can’t wait for fans to experience Los Angeles through the action and touching relationship between Zoe Toure and Marika Gerrard. I hope people find their journey as amazing and resonant as I did.”
