INHERITANCE follows the emotionally charged journey of two estranged sisters who reunite after the death of their father, uncovering buried family secrets and finding unexpected paths to forgiveness. The ensemble cast includes veteran actresses Michelle Hurd and Cynthia Geary, along with Wes Brown, Chris Mulkey, and Brian McNamara in supporting roles.
Moss Wilson, Noll James, and Highsmith Garces spent 10 years bringing INHERITANCE to life, facing near-insurmountable challenges, including the largest industry work stoppage in over 60 years. Just weeks before production was set to begin on Bainbridge Island WA, the team secured an interim agreement from SAG-AFTRA, allowing the film to proceed.
“The strikes really put the spotlight on indie film and its importance to our industry,” said the director Emily Moss Wilson.

“The timing of this production turned out to be a blessing, as it attracted a stellar supporting cast that enhanced the film’s depth and impact,” added writer and actress Rachel Noll James.
“The film is a true testament to the power of women supporting women, perseverance, and the independent film spirit,” concluded actress Austin Highsmith Garces.

It is the second narrative feature from Emergence Films, a female-focused US and UK-based production company co-founded by Rachel Noll James and Sienna Beckman.
