Zoom already premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and even received an Ithaca International Fantastic Film Festival’s best movie nod. Slated to release next month to a worldwide audience, the project now dishes out its first trailer. The plot centers around a sex doll creator played by Allison Pill (Newsroom, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), who also illustrates cartoons as a hobby. To vent out her frustrations in life, she draws her ideal man, Edward (played by Gael Garcia Bernal) — a suave movie director who is producing a film about a model/writer named Michelle (Mariana Ximenes). In a super meta twist, it turns out that Michelle is also writing about Emma. Things soon get more interesting when drugs get involved and Emma has to change a few things about her “imaginary” dream man.

The official plot description is: “A multi-dimensional interface between a comic book artist, a novelist, and a film director. Each lives in a separate reality but authors a story about one of the others.”

Zoom will be released in theaters on September 2nd.
