After having served time for murdering his girlfriend, John’s punishment has come to an end. But he soon discovers that the real pain he needs to experience has not yet begun.
The most rugged of psychological terrains is charted in this complicated study of a young, violent mind. Lensed by Ida cinematographer Lukasz Zal, The Here After captures the ripples violence sends through a community both mourning and seeking justice. A difficult, necessary meditation on murder.
