Her latest film, The Darkest Minds synopsis says: “When teens mysteriously develop powerful new abilities, they are seen as a threat by the government and sent to detainment camps. Sixteen-year-old Ruby (Amandla Stenberg) soon escapes from her captors and joins other runaways who are seeking a safe haven. Banded together and on the run, they soon combine their collective powers to fight the adults who tried to take away their future.” 

The Darkest Minds is directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and also stars Mandy Moore and Gwendoline Cristie.
