Set in the cutthroat male dominated voice-over industry, Carol Solomon is a struggling vocal coach who lives under the roof of her father Sam Sotto -- the industry's reigning king of movie trailer voice-overs (after the passing of the real legend of the industry Don LaFontaine). When the timeless movie trailer phrase "In a world..." gets resurrected for an epic quadrilogy, Carol, her father and the rest of the voice-over community clamor for the honored opportunity. As a fierce father-daughter competition erupts, Carol faces a sexist industry, a dysfunctional family and her father’s arrogant protégé Gustav Warner -- ultimately finding her vocal superpowers to change the voice of a generation.

Special features include deleted scenes, a gag reel and six voiceover promo trailers for the film. Also included is a feature commentary with writer/director/actor Bell, who explores the father-daughter competition story through lessons on how to rise from weakness, accept achievement and receive love.
