The story is set in a world in which a compulsory operation at sixteen wipes out physical differences and makes everyone pretty by conforming to an ideal standard of beauty.

Westerfield executive produces, alongside Joey King and Jamie King.

King is best known for her roles in "The Kissing Booth" films, and her Emmy-nominated take in "The Act."
