After the Rain – with English subtitles
Over 6,000 parents lost their only child in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. The film follows two couples who became close friends through the shared experience of losing their daughters (each named “Rain”) and bringing new children into their torn families. In 2017, parents Mei and Sheng live with their 6-year-old son, Chuan. Their friends, Ying and Ping, are raising 11-year-old Ran-ran. The families are haunted by resentment and unspeakable grief, but search for the strength to build a future for Chuan and Ran-ran.
