Co-writer of Wong and indigenous director Hisonni Johnson (Grayson: Earth One) the story revolves around Tera (Wong), a 20-year-old Asian-American woman who turns her expertise in family restaurant delivery into a profitable drug business to support her immigrant mother’s troubled business.

“We went out of our way to create a universally relatable story without sacrificing the color of its roots. That’s why we retained the Asian-American voice, experience and authenticity,” Wong and Johnson wrote in a statement. “In turbulent political times like now Take out girls manages to demystify the narrative of the “other” and the divisive myth of the “model minority” that the media have historically used to play off minorities against each other. We hope so Take out girls makes a positive contribution to America’s social climate by provoking healthy conversations about the different cultural structures of this country and our common struggles. We strongly believe that diversity is a source of strength, not of division. ”

In addition to Wong, Ski Carr (SHIELD agents, Blue Bloods), Lynna Yee (Degrees off the boat), J. Teddy Garces (Days of our lives, Zane is the takeoff), Lorin Ly (Raskal Love, one day), Dijon Talton (Glee how to get away with murder) and rapper $ tupid Young in a cameo role.

“I was blown away by Hedy’s breakout performance when I did the screening Take out girls at ABFF ” Greg Maurice, director of content acquisition at 1091 Pictures, said in a statement. “Her intensity and grit combined with Hisonni’s chic film style are the result of her success at many different festivals. Given that we live in such a divisive era, it’s always inspiring to see two people from different backgrounds like Hisonni and Hedy work together and include an inclusive cast to create such an amazing job. “
