Heard plays Baja Miller, a high school student, in this action drama directed by Jeff Wadlow. Baja befriends new kid in town Jake, and invites him to a party where he gets into a fight and catches the eye of a fellow student who then introduces him to an MMA fighter and trainer. Co-starring Sean Faris and Djimon Hounsou.
I think Baja Miller, my character, is a young girl who starts off as insecure and unsure of herself. Maybe even unintelligent, or so one would think. In Baja’s first scene she pretends to not know the answer to a question in class that she knows very well. It serves as mirror to society; I think a very strong one.
