Watch the trailer for the Netflix drama The Fundamentals of Caring, which follows the adventures of an 18-year-old English muscular dystrophy (MD) patient, Trevor (Craig Roberts), and a retired writer-turned-caregiver, Ben (Paul Rudd).

The unlikely pair embark on a road trip, picking up runaway Dot (Selena Gomez) and a heavily pregnant woman, Peaches (Megan Ferguson) along the way.
