The narrative itself places the action during a weekend getaway to Croatia, which quickly goes south when a woman is accused of murdering her best friend.

As she tries to clear her name and uncover the truth, her efforts unearth a painful secret.

Ahead of filming, Alderson shared in a statement: "I am so excited to see The Weekend Away make it to the screen. To have adapted my own novel makes it even more special, and I am thrilled that Leighton will be bringing this character to life."
