Coming from Amazon Studios, Life Itself stars Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde as a couple whose journey is intertwined with a group of people ranging from New York to Spain and how all of their lives intersect over the course of different generations thanks to one mysterious tragic event.

 “Strange to think about how a completely random moment would shape my entire life,” Isaac’s character says in the trailer.
