Stewart played the role of a 16-year-old girl named Allison who fled to New Orleans and became a stripper in one of the city’s clubs. There, she also met a father-figure man who helped fix her life.
She explained that the movie was not all about stripping. Rather, she described Allison as a girl who’s struggling to make things happen on her own as she lacks the skills to do them.
She added that her character was, by far, the most personal role she ever had.
