Aftermath

A gripping psychological thriller, Aftermath tells the story of two estranged brothers, Franek and Josef, who discover a terrible secret that forces them to revise their perception of their family, neighbors, and the history of their nation. The sons of a poor farmer from a small village in central Poland, Franek immigrated to the US in the 1980s and cut ties with his family. Only when his brother’s wife arrives two decades later without explanation does Franek decide to return to his homeland. There he finds his brother has been ostracized from the community and is receiving various threats, and soon they are drawn into an incendiary gothic tale of intrigue and reckoning with a dark period in Polish history. “Gripping. A bombshell disguised as a thriller…. An especially effective film noir. Excellent.”—Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times.
