Entertainment Squad has announced the upcoming release of the mystery thriller ROOT LETTER in select theaters and on demand September 1. root letter is adapted from the best-selling Japanese video game of the same title by Kadokawa Games.

The film centers on Carlos (Top Gun: Maverick’s Danny Ramirez), a poor teenager from a fractured home, as he attempts to reconnect with Sarah (Keana Marie), a school correspondent after receiving a desperate note from her claiming that she killed someone. As Carlos travels to Sarah’s hometown and investigates, he uncovers a criminal conspiracy involving Sarah’s group of friends and a chilling secret that led to Sarah’s disappearance.

O’hara commented, “I was drawn to David Ebeltoft’s Root Letter screenplay for its disturbing and hyper-realistic depiction of the opioid crisis. It was an uncomfortable read that left me with a sense of dread that continued to haunt me. I knew right away that I had to do it. As an immigrant myself, I was moved by Carlos’ journey and Danny Ramirez brought such pathos to the role. I can’t think of a more relevant time to share this urgent story with the world.
