The film had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 15, 2016.[3] Shortly after, Netflix acquired SVOD rights to the film.[4] Gunpowder & Sky later acquired distribution rights and set the film for an April 14, 2017, release.[5]

Reception

It received a 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.[6] Neal Genzlinger of the New York Times said, "Countless movies have examined what happens when a country mouse goes to the city; this one shows that leaving a gentrified urban oasis for a small-town world can be just as jolting."[6]
