Birthright, which will be produced by Western Australian film maker Cody Greenwood next year, was written by Zoe Pepper, a Western Australian writer and director for film, TV and theatre.

Birthright is a tale of revenge featuring a character called Cory who loses his job, gets evicted from his rental home and with his pregnant wife Jasmine must move back in with his parents. During the stay Cory becomes fixated on his parents' wealth. Writer and director Zoe Pepper says she went wild with the black comedy script and has described it as a film that explores intergenerational inequality between Baby Boomers and their Millennial children.

Zoe Pepper and Cody Greenwood join the ranks of previous West Coast Visions recipients, including most recently Renée Webster, Tania Chambers and Judi Levine for How to Please a Woman which is winning hearts across Australia with cinema-goers flocking to see it in the first three weeks.
