March 18 (UPI) -- Netflix has announced plans to air Joy, a new British film starring Thomasin McKenzie, James Norton and Bill Nighy.

The film is based on the true story of the birth of In vitro fertilization in the 1970s.

No official release date has been announced yet, but the streaming service shared a 30-second teaser on Monday that shows one woman (McKenzie) telling her doctors, played by Norton and Nighy, "Without you, none of this works."

Later she is seen declaring, "I just want a baby."

Nighy can also be heard saying, "What we're doing, it matters."
