Life seems good for Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos). She is intelligent, has a loving family and great at martial arts.

But things aren’t as perfect as they seem in the exclusive trailer for Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle.

Her martial arts class is taught by the Japanese conquerors who rule part of America, and being part of the Nazi Youth is expected of young men in the U.S.

The series takes place in an alternate history of the U.S., imagining what would have happened if the Allied Powers lost World War II. The series takes place 17 years after that loss. The Nazis control the eastern United States, while Japan controls the Pacific Coast.

Meanwhile, the Rocky Mountains have become a neutral zone, where a group of U.S. resistance fighters battle for independence. They believe the key to their success lies in old war footage, which shows that the Allies actually won the war.

The drama is based on sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick’s 1962 alternate history novel.

The Man in the High Castle debuts Nov. 20 on Amazon Prime.
