With guest appearances from Michael Peña, Judy Reyes, Luis Guzman and more, and based on true stories, the video focuses on several themes including the separation of families at the US border who are trying seek asylum in the US, racism and white supremacy, among others, and follows the storylines of two different people that ultimately merge in the end.
The visual begins as a family is separated at the US/Mexico border by border patrol, as a young boy is then put into a holding cell with other children who have been separated from their families. The boy is then placed in foster care and shows moments of his life growing up; from graduating high school, to studying in med school, to eventually becoming a doctor.
On the flip side, the video also shows a young white boy, who grows up in a family of white supremacists, and ultimately, becomes one himself. As an adult, he tries to attack a black man with a knife at bar, but ends up stabbing himself. When he is brought to the hospital, the doctor operating on him turns out to be the young boy who was separated from his family at the beginning of the video, as a grown man, and he is surrounded by nurses and assistants of all different races. After noticing several of the man's tattoos on the operating table, he tells the man, who is bleeding from his abdomen, "It's OK, man."
Logic and Ryan also appear in the the video, with the rapper wearing a t-shirt that says "F*** The Wall." Ahead of releasing the video, Logic described the video as "very important" and added, "I'm incredibly proud of it."
"One Day" is Logic's latest single, and he has said of the song on Twitter, "I'm so excited to release this single, we do the boombap s***, we do the trap s***. But this one is for everyone out their with dreams and goals!! Making music is fun, but music with a message is so more important!!! This one is for anyone with a dream!!"
