The film set out on a mission to find female DJs with in the industry who could share their experiences when asked the ultimate question: “What do women bring to electronic music that no one else can?”

They wanted to approach this topic differently than anyone else had in the past and prove that there are many ways in which we can forge a better path ahead. During the process of the film the creators noticed an ongoing theme of women needing a safe space to discuss their experiences in the male dominated industry.
