In After Love, Mary Hussain (Joanna Scanlan), who converted to Islam when
she married and is now in her early 60s, lives quietly with her husband
Ahmed. Following his unexpected death, she suddenly finds herself a widow.
A day after the burial, she discovers that Ahmed had a secret life just 21
miles away from their Dover home, across the Channel in Calais. The
shocking discovery compels her to go there to find out more, and as she
grapples with her shattered sense of identity, her search for understanding
has surprising consequences.
