After Life

After Life is about recovering from grief. Ricky Gervais has lost his wife and he can't get past the grief so he regularly visits the grave and spends most nights drinking as he views videos of his one great love. There is dark humor, a little pathos and a cast of characters who represent a slice of society; all of them with their own pain and suffering occasionally peppered with moments of joy and humor.

Life isn't easy for anyone and yet there is sometimes laughter to be found in the irrationality of it all.
