The story follows Jean, played by Brosnahan, forced to flee with her child due to crimes committed by her husband. While on the run, they face other problems including an unlikely partnership with another couple.

I'm Your Woman will be Hart's fourth feature film. The filmmaker directed the dramatic comedy Miss Stevens in 2016 with Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) and Lili Reinhart (Riverdale). More recently, she directed and co-wrote futuristic thriller Fast Color, with Horowitz, released on April 29 2019 in the US. Hart is also preparing for the release of her next movie, Stargirl, due out in 2020.

In addition to playing the title role in the Amazon Prime Video series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which won her the Emmy Award for best actress in 2018, Brosnahan is pursuing her career on the big screen. The award-winning actress will star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the drama Ironbark, expected for release later this year.
