According to Deadline - the first to report on the film - the movie has similarities to Marriage Story and will touch on social themes that are relevant right now.

After Euphoria shut down production in March Zendaya reportedly asked Sam if he could write and direct a film during quarantine. Within six days he had a draft for the film.

While working on the script, Sam pictured the Ballers actor in the role of Malcolm and was able to secure him for the role.

The film was funded by the actors and the director and was shot between 17 June to 2 July at the Caterpillar House, an environmentally conscious art house in California.
