Set in the rural American South, the Netflix drama revolves around two soldiers who resume their work on a farm in rural Mississippi, where they struggle to deal with racism and adjusting to life after World War II. The veterans, played by Garrett Hedlund and Jason Mitchell, strike up a friendship, to the dismay of their families and communities.

Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke, Jonathan Banks and Mary J. Blige also make up the ensemble cast of the Sundance hit, directed by Dee Rees and based on the 2008 novel by Hillary Jordan. Rees co-wrote the screenplay with Virgil Williams.

Netflix releases Mudbound on Nov. 17.
