When I’m A Moth is an untold story about former Secretary of State and U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s younger days. Although lacking in real details, the film takes liberties to formulate a narrative on Clinton’s early days in Alaska in this coming-of-age story starring Addison Timlin.
Here’s the official synopsis:
From acclaimed filmmakers Zachary Cotler (The Wall of Mexico) and Magdalena Zyzak (Maya Dardel), and starring Addison Timlin as Hillary Clinton, When I’m A Moth is a “what if” scenario that sees a young Hillary working as a fishmonger in Alaska. Possibly an un-biopic of Hillary Rodham set in 1969 Alaska. Possibly a collective dream about a young woman with only the most abstract connection to the politician. Possibly both.
The film also stars T.J. Kayama (Path of Dreams, The Stand) and Toshiji Takeshima (S.W.A.T., True Blood).
