Starring Kiersey Clemons (Dope, The Flash), the movie follows Susie, an unpopular college student who hopes to solve a local mystery in an effort to bring awareness to her true crime podcast.

In Susie Searches, Susie (Clemons) is an “awkward college student with a failing true-crime podcast, who seizes the opportunity to boost her campus and online popularity by solving the mysterious disappearance of Jesse (Alex Wolff, Hereditary), the campus heart-throb. With her star on the rise, events take a dark turn as Susie digs out the truth and soon finds herself in over her head.”
