‘This is Us’ star, Milana Vayntrub, plays Tara, a tightly-wound optimist who has just been deserted by her fiancé ten days before their wedding. Meanwhile, the city erects a trigger-happy speed camera across the street from her house, which quickly becomes the unwitting lightning rod for Tara’s pent-up wrath. Convinced it’s the speed trap – and not her ex – that’s ruining her life, Tara resorts to petty vandalism and emotional desperation before finding a way to turn the device into a tool of sweet revenge. In this female-driven dark comedy, Moving Violation follows Tara on a riotous journey to discover true catharsis as an empowered, single woman.
