Hailing from producer Kyle Newacheck and music video vet Brandon Dermer, I’m Totally Fine follows a Vanessa (Bell), a woman in mourning who takes a solo trip to clear her head after the death of her friend (Morales). However, Vanessa’s self-care vacation plans change when she’s met with a situation out of this world.

“We were making a movie that mirrored what we had all collectively been experiencing over 2020, without being literal. The metaphor of it is 2020 and being powerless – all of a sudden everything got taken away from us as we knew it, everything changed,” says Newacheck.

The film, also produced by Jonas Dolkart, also stars Newacheck, Harvey Guillen and Karen Maruyama.

Alisha Ketry penned the I’m Totally Fine script.

Morales previous credits include films Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Going the Distance.
