A separated couple meet again on a beach in their hometown to talk about the suicide of their mutual best friend. Through this meeting they confront their grief, relationship and futures, before unexpected revelations force them to re-examine the past.

Inspired by true events in the lives of the filmmakers, After The Sea provides a brief window into the ever lasting devastation caused by losing a loved one to suicide, and hopes to contribute towards the ongoing public discussion on mental health. Starring Elliot James Langridge (Northern Soul) and Lauren Cato (Art of Love).
