Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
When journalist Kenny Brogan (Kevin McKidd) tries to jump start his career by interviewing a doctor who may be involved in an assisted suicide clinic, he doesn't realize that his rise to the top could be halted by dying family members of his own. His mother, May (Lindsay Duncan), reveals she has ovarian cancer, and Brogan could potentially be burdened with the care and feeding of his mentally impaired sibling. Directed by Alison Peebles, Afterlife also features Shirley Henderson, Paula Sage, James Laurenson, Fiona Bell, Julie Austin, and Antony Strachan.
