Gravitas Ventures has acquired the North American rights to Katie Holmes' directorial debut, All We Had.

Based on the 2014 novel by Annie Weatherwax, the coming-of-age story focuses on a mother and daughter who find themselves in search of stability.

Holmes also stars in the project, alongside Stefania Owen and Luke Wilson.

“As an actress, I have been honored to work on sets my entire career with directors who have inspired me,” said Holmes. “I have always wanted to direct so that I could be not only a part of the process, but to bring a story to life from inception to completion. This was extremely gratifying to me as an artist, and I cannot wait to direct my next film.”

Holmes also produced the project, alongside Jane Rosenthal, Berry Welsh and Katie Mustard. James L. Dolan executive produced, along with Josh Boone and Jill Killington, who adapted Weatherwax's novel for the screen.

All We Had had its premiere at this year's Tribeca Film Festival and will hit theaters and on-demand on Dec. 9.

“Stefania Owen and Katie Holmes masterfully portray a compelling mother-daughter bond in ‘All We Had,’ ” said Gravitas CEO Nolan Gallagher. “We are honored to support Katie Holmes’ feature directorial debut and get the film out to millions of viewers.”

The deal was negotiated by ICM on behalf of the filmmakers.
