According to director Jessica Price, “Freaky Friday is about an overworked mother and her teenage daughter who magically swap bodies and have just one day to put things right again. By spending the day in each other’s shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another’s struggles, learn self-acceptance, and realize the immeasureable love and mutual respect that bond a mother and daughter.”
