After the unexpected death of their eccentric playwright father, a pair of sisters find out that the mother they thought was dead is alive and starring on a soap opera in this unconventional, expectation-defying dramedy by co-writer/director/star Hannah Pearl Utt (who plays the more grounded, sensible sister Rachel).  

Blending over-the-top comedic moments with a nuanced and thoughtful depiction of Rachel’s journey of self-discovery, BEFORE YOU KNOW IT is a wonderfully unique, witty debut from an exciting new filmmaking voice.

A strong debut that pushes the boundaries of what movies made from the female gaze can mean to audiences of all kinds.” – The Hollywood Reporter
