The film shows two people realising that sometimes what you’ve left behind is what you need, and that you can go back to what you want. It’s about forgiveness and accepting that everyone makes mistakes, and about supporting one another instead of assigning blame for matters that are sometimes out of your control. Acceptance that sometimes it’s nobody’s fault. The feeling of loss is strong throughout the film and they deal with the sensitive matter of suicide extremely well.
'After the Sea' makes a strong comment on mental health and also how losing someone you love can cause lasting devastation.
