THE LIFE AFTER
Filmfest 2017

German Age Rating

Watch Teaser

Antonia's dad is still a punk and guitar teacher, who dreams of London Calling just like their home town of Duisburg dreamt of hosting the famous Love Parade, which became a deadly debacle in 2010. Antonia is one of the survivors, who still has a hard time dealing with her mourning, her anger and her guilt toward those who didn't make it. When she takes it out on the memorial one night, she runs into cab driver Sascha. His life was destroyed that day seven years ago, too. He lost his job as a mathematician and his marriage fell apart. He tells her he was trapped in the tunnel, too. But when Antonia figures out he's lying, she finally has an object to focus her wrath on.
