Two bus crash survivors share the same dream whilst in a coma. In their parallel world their small town is besieged by a black, ominous mist, inside which are monsters guarding all exits from the town. They must form an alliance to discover where they are and find a special key that will help them escape as well as unravel the truth behind their extraordinary situation.
Are they dead? In an alternate dimension? Is it all a dream? Some combination of each scenario? That's the guiding force behind AFTER, which takes its time developing the mystery and the relationship between Ana and Freddy. As the couple scavenge houses and attempt to find a way out of the town, they learn that they are not alone.. there's something else present, and it's got big, nasty teeth.
AFTER is a complex, haunting and thoroughly satisfying thriller. Ryan Smith is truly a director to keep an eye on!
