Take Out Girl Trailer

"Side hustle – is it worth it?" 1091 Pictures has revealed an official trailer for an indie film titled Take Out Girl, which originally premiered at last year's Cinequest Film Festival. Take Out Girl tells the story of Tera, a 20-year-old Asian-American woman who parlays her family restaurant delivery expertise into a profitable drug hustle in order and help out her immigrant mother's struggling business. Lead actor / co-writer Hedy Wong and Indigenous director / co-writer Hisonni Johnson choose to amplify their AAPI / Indigenous voices by focusing on commonalities in their upbringing. They came together on this project to show how their shared familial bonds, poverty, and the lack of any upward economic mobility, led to crime in their minority communities. Also starring Ski Carr, Lynna Yee, J. Teddy Garces, Lorin Alond Ly, Dijon Talton, Mier Chasin, and Lizette Hunter. This looks way better than expected, might be worth a watch.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Hisonni Johnson's Take Out Girl, direct from 1091's YouTube:
