The title of this British melodrama could just as well have been Long, Long Afterwards, since many of the plot twists have already occurred before the opening fade-in. J. R. Tozer plays a highly respected doctor with a highly checkered past. Years earlier, while stationed in colonial India, Tozer had killed a beautiful young Englishwoman rather than allow her to fall into the hands of marauding savages. Now Tozer is in love with Marjorie Hume, and his rival for Marjorie's affections is Cecil Barry. Ah, cruel fate! Barry was once the fiance of the girl Tozer killed. Afterwards was adapted from the suffering-in-dinner-clothes novel by Kathlyn Rhodes.
