A war is coming to London as the gap between rich and poor is stretched to its limits in the trailer for Netflix‘s The Kitchen.

Co-directed by Daniel Kaluuya and Kibwe Tavares, the upcoming science fiction drama pits the underclass of a dystopian London against a brutal ruling class in a society where social housing has been eliminated. Instead, the working class make up the residents of “The Kitchen,” including British actor and rapper Kane Robinson’s Izi.

“I’m getting out of this place,” Izi tells one man in the trailer, who responds, “It’s our home.”

With Jedaiah Bannerman’s Benji — the son he never knew — under his wing, Izi fights to escape a place plagued by violent repression as their community refuses to leave the place they call home. The two-minute trailer mostly focuses in on painting the film’s universe through a series of action sequences that visualizes the brutality of London’s police state.

Serving as Kaluuya and Tavares’ feature directorial debuts, the award-winning Get Out and Judas and the Black Messiah star also co-wrote the film with Joe Murtagh and produced alongside Daniel Emmerson. The Kitchen also stars Hope Ikpoku Jr, Ian Wright, BackRoad Gee, Cristale, Teija Kabs and Demmy Ladipo.

After debuting at the 67th BFI London Film Festival in October, the film will drop on Netflix Jan. 19.
