What does the trailer for You Don’t Know Me show?

The trailer sees Hero meeting Kyra on a bus and developing a romance with her, but then freaking out after she goes missing.

He puts up missing posters and paces the streets in a bid to find her.

But then it takes a turn when he meets gang members, and then we see him in the dock.

The 40-second trailer ends with Hero saying: “I did not kill that boy…”

So could this mean he’s in the dock for two murders? And who is ‘that boy’?

It won’t be long until we find out.
