Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming drama All Day and A Night, written and directed by Black Panther co-writer Joe Robert Cole.

Landing in prison beside his father, J.D. (Jeffrey Wright, Westworld) whom he never wanted to be like, Jahkor embarks on an unlikely journey of self-discovery, exploring the events that unite them, in hopes of helping his newborn son break a cycle that feels unavoidable”.
