Preceded by the music video WATER & OIL.

When Elsa Mercado (Michelle Veintimilla, Gotham) is released from prison after serving 16 years for killing her father, New York City Councilwoman Sandy James (Karen Pittman, The Morning Show, Yellowstone) and corporate attorney Paul Jenkins (Corey Stoll, House of Cards, Ant Man, The Strain) are forced to grapple with their involvement in the original crime. WHAT WE DO NEXT is a timely emotional thriller sitting at the intersection of race, class and criminal justice.
