The film also stars Luke Kirby, James Badge Dale, and Lance Reddick.

Little Woods opens in theaters April 19th.

Little Woods, North Dakota, a fracking boomtown well beyond its prime.  Ollie is trying to survive the last few days of her probation after getting caught illegally running prescription pills over the Canadian border. But when her mother dies, she is thrust back into the life of her estranged sister Deb (James), who is facing her own crisis with an unplanned pregnancy and a deadbeat ex.  The two find they have one week to settle the mortgage on their mother’s house or face foreclosure. As bills and pressure mount, Ollie faces a choice: whether to return to a way of life she thought she’d left behind for just one more score or to leave it all behind.  A taught and affecting thriller about sisters pushed to extremes from award-winning director Nia DaCosta.
