Mary Hussain (Joanna Scanlan, Notes on a Scandal), who converted to Islam when she married and is now in her early sixties, lives quietly with her husband Ahmed in the port town of Dover in the South-East of England.

“At After Love’s heart is a constrained yet wonderfully expressive performance by the versatile Joanna Scanlan … here offering a masterclass in the dramatic power of understatement.” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian

Following his unexpected death, she suddenly finds herself a widow.  A day after the burial, she discovers that Ahmed had a secret life just twenty-one miles away from their home, across the English Channel in Calais. The shocking discovery compels Mary to find out more and, as she grapples with her shattered sense of identity, her search for understanding has surprising consequences. Featuring a powerful, award-winning performance by Scanlan, After Love is a highly-accomplished debut from writer/director Aleem Khan. (Dir. by Aleem Khan, 2020, UK, in English/French/Arabic/Urdu with English subtitles, 89 mins., Not  Rated)
