Check out the very first teaser poster that Netflix has released for Bong Joon-Ho’s upcoming film OKJA, which can be seen down below!

Set to make its debut at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday, May 19, the film stars Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Giancarlo Esposito, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, and newcomer An Set Hyun.

For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja– a massive animal and an even bigger friend– at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when the family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and self-promotion CEO Lucy Mirando (Swinton) has big plans for Mija’s dearest friend.

With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja… while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home.

Deftly blending genres, humor, poignancy and drama, Joon Ho begins with the gentlest of premises-the-bond between man and animal-and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the world that addresses the animal inside us all.

Okja premieres exclusively on the streaming site on June 28.
