In a distant future, on a savage planet, the lonely teenager Roxy frees a criminal buried in the sand.
In a distant future, on a savage planet, the lonely teenager Roxy frees a criminal buried in the sand. Once freed, the woman starts spreading fear and death again. Roxy and her mother Zora are deemed responsible, exiled from their community and sentenced to track down the killer. Thus, they begin roaming the fantastical and spectral territories of their dirty paradise.
"After Blue is Bertrand Mandico's exhilarating vision of an Eden gone awry, a portrait of humanity orphaned by a Waiting for Godot-like loneliness. It's a vision of a clean slate in which everything - and everyone - can be reinvented, and every norm challenged." - The Film Stage
