Raising a kid on your own is hard enough. In Netflix's new series about superpowers, a mother learns just how hard it is to raise a kid who has abilities on her own.

Nicole's (Alisha Wainwright) husband, Mark (Michael B. Jordan), tells her their kid is "something special." But after Mark's death, she realizes just how special Dion (Ja'Siah Young) is when he begins to manifest several, mysterious, superhero-like abilities. As the Raising Dion trailer shows, at least one of those powers comes at a time he needs it the most.
