Netflix has released the first trailer for Chiwetel Ejiofor’s directorial debut The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. The film, which was also written by and stars Ejiofor, is based on the bestselling book of the same name written by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer.

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind tells the story of 13-year-old William Kamkwamba (newcomer Maxwell Simba), who is thrown out of the school he loves when his family can no longer afford the pricey cost of attendance that comes with it.

After getting kicked out, William sneaks back into the school’s library and discovers a way to build a windmill using the bones of the bicycle belonging to his father Trywell (Ejiofor), which ultimately helps saves his Malawian village from famine.

“A global story, such as this, requires a global platform and I’m thrilled to be working with Netflix on bringing William’s extraordinary tale of determination and inventiveness to audiences worldwide,” Ejiofor said in a statement last year when Netflix acquired global distribution rights to the film.

The film, which was shot on location in the African country of Malawi, was produced by Andrea Calderwood and Gail Egan and also stars Aïssa Maïga, Lily Banda, Lemogang Tsipa, Philbert Falakeza, Joseph Marcell, and Noma Dumezweni.

Netflix will launch The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind globally on their streaming service and in select theaters in the U.S. and U.K. beginning March 1.
