THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR - Official Trailer.
Natasha (Yara Shahidi) lives in New York City with her parents Samuel (Gbenga Akinnagbe) and Patricia, and her brother Peter, all of whom are illegally in the country. Natasha and her family are set to be deported back to Jamaica. The day before her family must leave, Natasha goes to the immigration office and makes a tearful plea for her parents' case. Lester Barnes (Hill Harper), the Immigration Case Worker, gives Natasha the contact info for Jeremy Martinez (John Leguizamo), who can do pro bono work for her case. Natasha contacts Mr. Martinez's office and, after pleading, is told she can meet with him for 15 minutes during his lunch break.
Daniel (Charles Melton) Bae is preparing for an interview for Dartmouth. While getting ready, he writes "Deux ex Machina" into his notebook. He comes from a Korean family, and his parents Dae Hyun and Min Soo encourage him to pursue a career as a doctor. His brother, Charles, is dismissive and rude to him.
Daniel and his friend Omar get on the subway into the same subway car as Natasha, and the train stalls. The conductor reassures the passengers over the speakers that everything is fine and begins telling a story about a friend who missed a train and, had he been on time that day, would have died in the 9/11 attacks since he worked at the World Trade Center. The conductor tells the passengers to "open your heart to destiny." When Daniel and Omar get off at Grand Central Station, Daniel notices Natasha staring at the ceiling of Grand Central's main lobby. He also notices her jacket, which reads "Deus ex machina," a phrase he had been thinking about that morning. Daniel decides to go after her.
