Aftermath is an intense fantasy/thriller about two detectives who have captured a man covered in blood hovering over a mutilated body.

The film follows the interview of the suspect, Douglas, by two detectives, Big D and Hogan, who try to get to the bottom of the crime.

Douglas, however, has a secret he only wants to share with Det. Hogan.

The films exposes the mindset of a deranged killer who enjoys the chaos and pain his actions bring.

All this takes place in a nameless room within a nameless city.
The sheer intensity of the violent crime coupled with the claustrophobic interview room makes for compelling viewing.
