See You Yesterday will follow two African-American science prodigies played by Eden Duncan-Smith and Dante Crichlow who build a time machine in order to stop a family member from being wrongfully killed by a police officer.

The film is based on Bristol and Bailey's 2017 short film of the same name that is available for streaming on Cinemax's Max Go.

Netflix posted on Twitter Wednesday an image from the film featuring Duncan-Smith and Crichlow.

"Spike Lee & @StefonBristol have teamed up for See You Yesterday, a genre-blending drama that inventively utilizes time-travel to examine the urgent issue of police brutality. Eden Duncan-Smith and Danté Crichlow play scientific geniuses in the 2019 release," the streaming service said.
