The story, written by Ashley Reed, centers on a daughter attempting to regain custody of her son and seeking out her father -- who left her when she was 3 years old. Reed, who had worked with Dern on a stage play called "Chicken," began developing Hart's Location three years ago with the goal of uniting the Derns in a project.

"It made sense for all of us to be in this project because a lot of the story turns on the things that you wish that you'd said to your family members," Dern told Variety.
