Netflix has released the first trailer for Ellen Page’s indie drama, Tallulah, in which Page and her Juno co-star, Allison Janney, reunite for another mother/daughter dynamic.

Page stars as the eponymous Tallulah, a ‘free-spirited’ derelict who lives out of her run-down van in New York City.

After getting mistaken for a maid at a hotel, she meets Carolyn (Tammy Blanchard), a wildly irresponsible new mom who is trying (and failing) to care for her infant daughter.

Tallulah hatches a plan to rescue the baby girl from her dangerously negligent mother and use her in a con to convince her ex-boyfriend’s mom, Margo (Janney), that the young child is actually her granddaughter.

While Tallulah and Margo bond over their troubled lives and raising a baby, it soon becomes clear that you can’t just kidnap someone’s baby and expect everything to work out in the end – especially when the police get involved and initiate a manhunt.

Written and directed by Orange Is The New Black‘s Sian Heder, the film co-stars Uzo Aduba, Zachary Quinto and Davis Zayas, and is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on July 29.

Speaking to Indiewire earlier this year, Heder said of the inspiration for the story:

I used to work as a nanny for all the high-end hotels in LA and had a lot of weird experiences with mothers whose children seemed more like accessories than anything else. One night, I was so disturbed by the erratic behavior of a particular mother, I seriously considered taking off with the kid. I had been exploring the character of Tallulah already, based on a friend who was living off the grid out of her van. She was someone who lived with very little fear or sense of consequences for her actions. She seemed like the perfect person to steal a baby and set in motion a chain of events that could deal with some of the issues around motherhood and responsibility that I wanted to explore.”
