A24 has just dropped a trailer for one of its upcoming films, Hot Summer Nights. The film comes from new prodigy filmmaker Elijah Bynum, and is a coming-of-age drama that tells the story of a teen who gets caught up in a world of drugs and violence.

The film premiered at 2017’s South by Southwest and has since been picked up by A24, a company that prides itself on picking up indie projects of a certain flair. This film was written back in 2012, and while it made the Black List, it was put on a shelf for some time until the director found financial support with Imperative Entertainment.

Below is the official synopsis for Hot Summer Nights:

“Set in Cape Cod over one scorching summer, Hot Summer Nights follows Daniel (Timothée Chalamet), a shy out-of-towner who gets in over his head flipping weed with the neighborhood rebel (Alex Roe) while pursuing his new business partner’s enigmatic sister (Maika Monroe). With a hurricane looming in the wings, tensions rise against a backdrop of drive-ins, arcades, and crashed parties as the stakes (and temperatures) grow ever higher. Available exclusively on DIRECTV June 28. In Theaters July 27.”
