An English trailer for Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite has arrived. Winning the prestigious Palme d’Or award at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, the flick is described as a thrilling portrayal of social class dynamics.

Following a tight-knit yet unemployed family of four, Parasite tells the story of son Ki-woo and his desire to provide a regular income. His friend recommends him to take over his well-paid tutoring job for a wealthy family and to just forge his non-existent university diploma. The plan works, however, the meeting of the contrasting families trigger a chain of dark and alarming events.

Parasite brought home the highest Cannes award in May 2019, beating the likes of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die. This also marks Bong as the first and only South Korean director to achieve the feat.

Watch the full English trailer for Parasite above, and catch it in theaters stateside starting October 11.
