John Boyega is somewhat of a household name now thanks in large part to his role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and now in following up the actor will be starring in a new Netflix original film.

Dubbed Imperial Dreams, the film centers on Boyega as a former convict who is released from prison. Things take a turn for the worse when Boyega starts to undergo struggles in taking care of his son, while living in the Imperial Courts projects outside of Los Angeles. The film is ultimately a tale of survival and grit; perhaps a great departure from the action movies the industry has been recently oversaturated with.

Check out the trailer above, and let us know if you’ll be watching this new film when it streams globally on Netflix February 3.
