Paul Haggis and David Simon’s star-studded “Show Me a Hero” premieres on HBO this Sunday, a six-hour miniseries that finds its story in the rise of young mayor Nick Wasicsko and his struggle to keep afloat in an environment soaked with racial tension and turmoil.

Before he ever gets there, though, Wasicsko has to get through to the grocery shoppers who don’t seem to want to give him the time of day, let alone read through the informational pamphlets about his campaign. He puts in a good effort.

The adaptation of Lisa Belkin’s 1999 non-fiction book of the same name also stars Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina and Winona Ryder, and is set to explore issues of race and community through the lives of bureaucrats, activists and citizens of Yonkers, NY. 

Take a look at the clip above. “Show Me a Hero” premieres Sunday, August 18 at 8pm on HBO.
