Terminally-ill Annie and the two loves of her life - her partner Liam and their dog Whiskey - retreat to their favorite place for what seems like a relaxing weekend away. In reality, it's their last weekend together.
Annie and Liam have long had a plan to help her escape the seizures, the pain, the relentless confusion, and the fear of how much further from herself the tumor in her brain will take her before it ultimately takes her life.
Now, the time has come to say goodbye.
After This explores the heartbreaking complexities of love, loss, and dying with dignity.
Writer/Producer Kaitlyn Clare and Johnny Ferro play Annie and Liam, a couple in their prime who have been forced to confront the devastating inevitability of Annie's death.
Joined by Whiskey (Kaitlyn's real-life dog), the cast will be matched by the exceptional talent of breakout director Lizzie Germann, award-winning DP Laura Jansen, and film composer David Deutsch.
Story-driven, crafted with care, and set in the stunning Sierra Nevada mountain range, After This is cinema at its most moving and empathic.
