Loosely based on a true story, Decoding Annie Parker follows one family’s history of breast cancer — and the woman who teamed up with scientists to find out if the disease has a genetic link. The film, directed by Steven Bernstein, stars Samantha Morton as Annie Parker and Helen Hunt as the lead researcher on her case.

And in an exclusive clip from the film, we are taken back to 1974, when a food fight goes horribly wrong after Annie’s sister Joan (played by Marley Shelton) admits she’s found a lump in her breast.

The first trailer for Steven Bernstein’s Decoding Annie Parker gave us a lot to think about, from one woman’s journey to discover the genetic components of breast cancer to what Aaron Paul looks like with long hair. And now we have the exclusive reveal of the film’s first poster.

Decoding Annie Parker, which is loosely based on a true story, follows Annie Parker (played by Samantha Morton) as she finds out that she has breast cancer. But after a family history of the same diagnosis, Parker turns to a team of researchers, led by Helen Hunt, to try and find out if the cancer could be genetic. Add in Aaron Paul as a Canadian pool man, along with Alice Eve, Rashida Jones, Corey Stoll, Marley Shelton, and Ben McKenzie, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what to expect from this film.

Decoding Annie Parker hits theaters and VOD on May 2.

'Decoding Annie Parker' trailer: Putting faith in the future -- VIDEO

Could breast cancer be genetic? That’s the question at the center of Steven Bernstein’s Decoding Annie Parker.

Loosely based on a true story, the film follows Annie Parker, played by Samantha Morton, as she discovers that, much like her mother and her sister, she also has breast cancer. Helen Hunt, who plays a researcher, then teams up with Annie and a group of scientists to try and find a genetic link to the disease.

Putting aside the medical stuff, Aaron Paul also plays a Canadian pool man — so there’s that. And let’s not forget the film’s other familiar faces: Alice Eve, Rashida Jones, Corey Stoll, and Ben McKenzie.

Directed and written by Brian Horiuchi, the movie also stars Frank Langella, Gena Rowlands, Rosario Dawson, and Josh Hartnett, about three couples dealing with an event that could destroy their relationships.

• Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, Take Shelter) and equably formidable Samantha Morton (John Carter, Control) have been cast as the leads in thriller The Harvest, directed by John McNaughton (Wild Things) from a script by Stephen Lancellotti. The movie follows the story of an in-control heart surgeon (Morton), whose retired husband (Shannon) cares for their ill son. The son befriends a 13-year-old neighbor, causing family dynamics to break down.
