A scene for the forthcoming film about technology icon Steve Jobs has been released.

The video shows the first glimpse of Ashton Kutcher as the former Apple CEO, while trying to persuade Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Josh Gad) that his operating system can be successful.

The film’s synopsis has also been released by distributors Open Road Films and Five Star Feature Films:

“Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matthew Whitely, shot by Oscar- winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and produced by Mark Hulme, jOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2000. jOBS plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs’ life. The filmmakers were granted unprecedented access during shooting to the historic garage in Palo Alto, that served as the birthplace to Apple Inc.”

The film premieres at the Sundance Film festival this week.
