Emmanuel, who plays Daenerys Targaryen's adviser Missandei in the hit HBO series, plays the lead alongside Ron Livingston, who is known for roles in Office Space and as Jack Berger in Sex and the City.

The film is about the relationship struggles between a newly married couple when an old college roommate stays over for the weekend. It is due for release next year.
