It’s not easy being Aza, but she’s trying… trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, and a good student, all while navigating an endless barrage of invasive, obsessive thoughts that she cannot control.

When she reconnects with Davis, her childhood crush, Aza is confronted with fundamental questions about her potential for love, happiness, friendship, and hope.

Directed by Hannah Marks (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency), the romantic drama stars Isabela Merced, Cree, Felix Mallard, Judy Reyes, Maliq Johnson, and J. Smith-Cameron.

Turtles All the Way Down was written by and executive produced by Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker. The producers include Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen, and Isaac Klausner.

Also executive producing are Richard Brener, Nikki Ramey, and Paulina Sussman on behalf of New Line Cinema, alongside Laura Quicksilver, Bart Lipton, John Green, and Rosianna Halse Rojas.

John Green’s book, which you can order at Amazon (#ad), is officially described as follows:

Turtles All the Way Down

“Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake, and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

“Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.”
