But her image of her perfect family is shattered when she discovers long-buried secrets that threaten to destroy the very foundation of her life." Williams plays Helen Altman, "a children's author/artist whose book was extremely successful." (Deadline.com)

When she stumbles upon a plan for a series of terrorist attacks, she has to convince her CIA agent brother to look past her affliction and trust her." In addition, Neil Marshall has signed on to direct and executive produce with AppleBox Entertainment's Marc Helwig also executive producing. (Deadline.com)
