"The AfterMath" is a short film based on the ironic intersection of the lives of three men. Joshua, an Iraq War marine veteran, is struggling with an overwhelming obsession with recent police killings of young black men. Idris, a newly admitted law school student, is floating on cloud nine as he prepares to propose to his girlfriend. Sammy, a newly sworn in police officer, prepares for his first official day on the force, as he and his deaf wife, Asanti, learn they are pregnant. These three men's lives are thrown into a tailspin in a span of less than twenty-four hours.
