Here’s the description, according to THR:

The story centers on a popular high school student who dies under suspicious circumstances for 13 minutes before she is revived. The girl’s former best friend attempts to get back into her good graces by solving this would-be murder, but unwittingly steps into a hornet’s nest of social media driven manipulation and suburban secrets that puts her own life at risk.

The outlet also describes the movie’s tone as “Gone Girl-meets-Mean Girls“.

The movie is currently in development and does not have a release date quite yet.
