As soon as I finish opening my presents on Christmas Day, I’m heading straight to the theater to see Fences.

Ice Cream Convos has received a first look at Paramount’s forthcoming drama adapted from August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play.

Fences tells the story of an African American father’s struggles with race relations in the United States while trying to raise his family in the 1950s and coming to terms with the events of his life.

The film stars Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Jovan Adepo, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Russell Hornsby, Mykelti Williamson, and Saniyya Sydney.

Fences is directed and produced by Denzel, Todd Black and Scott Rudin.

Watch the powerful teaser trailer below.

Fences opens in theaters on Christmas Day.

Do you plan to go see it?
