What Is Netflix's The Red Sea Diving Resort About?

Chris Evans's New Netflix Drama Is Based on an Incredible True Story — Watch the Trailer

Now that Chris Evans has officially put Steve Rogers's shield to rest and exited the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actor has time for a whole host of other roles. In addition to the upcoming Knives Out, you'll be able to catch him in Netflix's The Red Sea Diving Resort at the end of the month. And, lucky for you, we now have our hands on a brand-new trailer for the latter.

The film, written and directed by Gideon Raff, is based on the real-life rescue missions that helped save thousands of refugees in Ethiopia from genocide. The way the team of undercover international agents and incredibly brave Ethiopians who helped carry out their mission is almost too wild to believe — the group uses a deserted holiday resort in Sudan as a front to smuggle people to Israel, saving them from certain death.

Chris Evans stars as the charismatic leader of the team, Ari Kidron, and is joined by The Wire's Michael Kenneth Williams as a courageous Ethiopian man, Kebede, who helps Ari pull the mission off. Haley Bennett, Alessandro Nivola, Michiel Huisman, Chris Chalk, Greg Kinnear, and Ben Kingsley round out the rest of the all-star cast.
