Twenty years after their last holiday at a fading vacation resort, Sophie reflects on the shared joy and sadness of her rare time together with her loving and idealistic father Calum.

Sophie at 11-years-old begins to experience the challenges of adolescence as Calum struggles under the pressures of his life outside of fatherhood. Sophie's recollections become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship, as memories both real and imagined fill the gaps, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn't.

“For all that Aftersun can be described as gentle, contemplative and even beautiful, it’s also the kind of film that feels as if it’s teetering on the edge of a cliff.” Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)

“This mesmeric debut will make you want to stay suspended in its sun-baked setting with its two captivating lead characters for far longer than the runtime. A triumph of new British filmmaking.” - Beth Webb, Empire Magazine
