If Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana were a real-life couple, they would have one heck of a beautiful family. But their on-screen family in the new indie film Infinitely Polar Bear isn’t so beautiful.

Ruffalo plays Cameron, an alcoholic who also battles mental illness. His condition cost him his wife Maggie (Saldana) and their two daughters. But when Maggie gets into graduate school in New York, she gives Cameron a second chance with his girls by leaving them in his care while she’s away.

The new trailer for the film offers a brief insight into Cameron’s bittersweet relationship with his daughters as well as the touching ups and downs they face together.

Infinitely Polar Bear was a part of 2014’s Sundance Film Festival and was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics after receiving mostly positive reactions. It hits theaters March 26.
