This show will really change the way you look at others. It will urge you to be good but it won’t feel forced or evident. After Life is a beautiful journey of a man as he tries to move on in his life after his wife died. He becomes friend with an old lady at the cemetery and talks about his life with him. This show is a fresh take on moving on and isn’t a fairytale story. For instance, the lead character is flawed in his own way. This show will take you on an emotional ride you didn’t know you needed in your life.
