NETFLIX has dropped the harrowing first trailer for 9/11 film Worth, where Michael Keaton plays a lawyer faced with an impossible decision
The former Batman stars alongside Stanley Tucci and Amy Ryan in the heart-wrenching drama.
Based on true life events, the action takes place following the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Keaton's character, the lawyer Kenneth Feinberg, is tasked with heading up the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.
Feinberg's role is to calculate how to compensate the families of the victims of the attacks, and ultimately, judge the worth of an individual's life.
The official synopsis for the film reads: "An attorney learns a lesson in empathy when he is faced with the near-impossible task of determining how to compensate families who suffered incalculable losses as a result of the September 11th attacks in 2001."
The clip was shared on Twitter by the streaming service, with the caption: "How do you calculate the value of a life?"
The film sees Tucci play community man Charles Wolf, who – while grieving foe his wife – at first locks horns with Feinberg, goes on to help the lawyer better understand the human cost of 9/11.
Directed by Sara Colangelo (The Kindergarten Teacher), Worth had its world premiere at last year's Sundance film festival.
The screenplay is written by Max Borenstein, adapted from the memoir What Is Life Worth by Kenneth Feinberg.
Worth, which also stars Marc Maron, Tate Donovan and Laura Benanti, premieres on Netflix on September 3.
