After Love

Merseyside-born actress Joanna Scanlan won a BAFTA for her melancholic performance as a grieving widow who discovers that her husband, for whom she converted to Muslim, had a secret life. British filmmaker Aleem Khan - making his directorial feature debut - shows incredible restraint in telling this coastal-set story of betrayal, grief and love.





When Mary Hussain (Joanna Scanlan) is widowed, she discovers a secret hidden among her husband’s personal effects that takes her on a journey from her home in Dover, across the Channel to Calais, where a devastating realisation awaits.
