Focus Features has released the first teaser trailer for Zach Braff's crowd-funded feature "Wish I Was Here." Focus acquired the film at Sundance for a reported $2.75 million.

"Wish I Was Here" is a coming-of-age story focused on Aidan Bloom, a 35-year-old actor played by Braff, whose career struggles have made it difficult for him to support his wife and children. When Bloom's sick father can no longer pay the tuition for his children's private school, Bloom reluctantly agrees to homeschool them. As Bloom embarks on this journey to teach his own children, he also begins to learn a lot about himself. Kate Hudson and Mandy Patnikin co-star as Bloom's wife and father, respectively.

Set to The Shins' "Simple Song" -- a track "How I Met Your Mother" fans will probably recognize from the season eight finale -- the trailer is a collection of the film's most powerful visual and emotional moments, edited in such a way that they leave the viewer curious and anxious for more.

Well played, Focus. Well played.

"Wish I Was Here" is slated to release in theaters on July 18. Watch the trailer below:
