Drawing deeper than ever on his personal memories and experiences, award-winning filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda (Our Little Sister, Still Walking, Nobody Knows) returns with a powerful story of family ties and expectations in AFTER THE STORM.
When a typhoon strikes, Ryota (Hiroshi Abe), a failed writer and third-rate detective, unexpectedly spends the night together with his son, ex-wife (Yoko Maki) and aging mother (legendary actress Kirin Kiki), allowing the estranged family the opportunity to believe in each other once again.
Hailed as the celebrated director's "most profound" (The Film Stage) and "beautifully balanced" (The Hollywood Reporter) work, AFTER THE STORM is, in Kore-eda's own words, "the film that is most coloured by what I am."
