The film focuses on a character named Ruth, a woman who comes into her own after discovering her superhuman abilities but is forced to go on the run when her powers are discovered. Years after having abandoned her family in order to protect them, the only place she has left to hide leads her back home.
The film is directed by Julia Hart, who also co-wrote the script with her husband Jordan Horowitz.
In an EW article, Julia Hart spoke about the idea for the project saying:
My husband and I came up with the idea for the movie when we became parents. I just felt this superhuman strength that I had never felt before when I became a mother. So, the idea for the movie came from this notion that mothers are superheroes. I realised that I’d never seen a movie where there was actually a superhero who was a mother. That was the origin of it, about these three generations of women — a grandmother, a mother, and a daughter — using their relationship with each other to understand, and accept, and use their powers.
Fast Color is scheduled for cinematic release on the 29th March 2019.
