What Is Netflix's Daybreak Movie About?

High School Gets Treacherously Apocalyptic in the Trailer For Netflix's Daybreak

You thought your four years of high school were hard? Try getting through it after a nuclear blast basically wipes out the planet on the night of Homecoming. Netflix's latest coming of age story Daybreak follows an eclectic group of survivors in a treacherous post-apocalyptic world full of hormones and vicious tribes kicking ass as they figure out this whacky thing called life (and, ya' know, survival).

It's as if Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Mad Max had a baby, which is appropriate considering Matthew Broderick stars as Glendale High School's Principal Michael Burr, alongside Colin Ford as our sassy young protagonist Josh Wheeler; Sophie Simnett as Sam Dean; Austin Crute as Wesley Fists; Alyvia Alyn Lind as Angelica Green; Cody Kearsley as Turbo Bro Jock; Jeanté Godlock as Mona Lisa; and Gregory Kasyan as Eli Cardashyan. Watch the trailer above, and get ready for the Battle Royale when Daybreak drops on Oct. 24.
