As The Wiz recently retook Broadway and is now on tour, we’re turning our attention to the female screenwriter who brought us the iconic 1939 adaptation of Frank L. Baum’s classic children’s story.

New to Los Angeles, a rideshare driver Clar (Maika Monroe) picks up Carl (Dane DeHaan) from a home deep in the Hollywood Hills. What begins as a routine ride turns into Clare's worst nightmare: a twelve-hour fight for survival through the city's seedy underbelly.
