Composer Mychael Danna describes the music as “a score based in two opposing factions: the old world of men, conservative thinking, and the slow-moving wheels of Government. Set against this is the indomitable team of Ruth and Marty, who embody the ideas and energy of the new reality of what America has become.”  He continues: “The music I wrote for this new reality is exciting, stirring, full of life, direction and focus. It is an anthem for the great gift of the founding fathers to America: the ability and the right of the Country to change.”

On the Basis of Sex is inspired by the spirited true story that follows young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband Marty to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination.  The feature will premiere in 2018 in line with Justice Ginsburg’s 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court.
