Grappling with the unexpected death of her husband, Mary Hussain (Scanlan, Pin Cushion), who took the name Fahima when she converted to his Muslim faith, is tidying his things in their Dover home when she stumbles upon a secret and sets off across the Channel to Calais to uncover the truth.
An arresting feature debut from BAFTA-nominated short filmmaker Aleem Khan, After Love is an accomplished, elegantly realised and insightful drama about the possibilities of connection across physical and cultural barriers. Scanlan is a revelation.
