The film is scheduled to begin production in mid-May in Puerto Rico. 13 Films is handling worldwide sales and will present the title to buyers this month during the Marché du Film at the Cannes Film Festival.

Kampf is directing from his own script, described as a revenge thriller wrapped around a love story with the question of the sacrifices made for love. The cast also includes Juana Acosta and Fernanda Urrejola.

Kampf, Levow and Sperry launched Equitas Entertainment last year as a production/film fund with the mission to close the gender pay gap and elevate underserved talents in the entertainment industry. Equitas’ last film was the dark comedy “Best Fake Friends.”
