Not many issue documentaries actually enact social change, but the same can’t be said for Gabriela Cowperthwaite‘s SeaWorld expose Blackfish. Following the success of her 2013 documentary, now the director is jumping into narrative dramas with the true-life tale Megan Leavey and ahead of a release this summer, the first trailer has arrived.

Starring Kate Mara, it follows her titular character who received the Purple Heart after fighting in Iraq, where she formed a bond with a canine. Years later, she fights to adopt him, and judging from the trailer, it looks to be a heart-tugging drama. Also starring Edie Falco, Ramón Rodríguez, Bradley Whitford, and Common, check out the trailer below.

MEGAN LEAVEY is based on the true life story of a young marine corporal (Kate Mara) whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy.
