Here’s a full synopsis: The film follows Jon (Garfield), a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical.

Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a make-or-break performance, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere: from his girlfriend Susan, who dreams of an artistic life beyond New York City; from his friend Michael, who has moved on from his dream to a life of financial security; amidst an artistic community being ravaged by the AIDS epidemic.

With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and faces the question everyone must reckon with: What are we meant to do with the time we have?

tick, tick…BOOM! marks Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s feature film directorial debut, and it will premiere in select theaters and on Netflix this fall!

If you missed it, Andrew has two more movies coming out this year that have also recently released trailers – The Eyes of Tammy Faye and Mainstream.
