Anne Heche’s last film before her tragic death is scheduled to hit theaters this September. Boasting an impressive and promising cast, Girl in Room 13’s plot is inspired by actual events, with human trafficking as the main theme. The film is part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines series.

Per Lifetime, the official synopsis states: “Inspired by actual events. Grace (Larissa Dias) became addicted to opioids after her doctor prescribed her for a sports injury at a very young age. After three stints in rehab, she’s finally ready to change her life. Under the watchful eye of her mother Janie (Anne Heche), Grace takes a job at her family’s restaurant, but her past won’t let her go, and when her friend forces her to meet her former love, The Drug Dealer Richie (Max Montesi ) finds himself locked in a hotel room with no way out.

Held captive, Richie repeatedly violates Grace, forcing her to use drugs and alcohol and starving her – all to break her so that she becomes docile and can be sold into human trafficking. Refusing to give up on her daughter, Janie embarks on an all-out hunt to find Grace. Directed by Elisabeth Rohm. (2022)”
