Sweet yet raunchy, 'Aftering' is a comedy following a post-divorce millennial woman and the fairy that lights her path to self-love. It’s Broad City meets Mary Poppins—if MP was a fan of masturbation and cheese puffs. It's laughter, glitter, and catharsis all rolled into one. Watch our trailer below.
Dawn seems put together but is actually dealing with repressed fears and a lack of identity outside her marriage: which just officially ended.
Astrid is a Divorce Fairy, and she literally appears out of thin air to f*ck things up and ultimately help Dawn heal, find her voice, and not just accept but LOVE her new life.
This great platonic love story began the way all great Los Angeles love stories do - in acting class.
Hilary had just gotten divorced (She's fine! Never better! Yes, that is young! Thanks for asking!) and Ashley had been dating (not too much, not that there is a too much, but she is trying mom...really).
ANYWAY, the point is that they bonded around being single, but they also had completely different perspectives and experiences around relationships. One day, Hilary (the divorced one) was walking her dog and she had an idea about how to tell her story in a way that was still funny and sweet and magical, and she asked Ashley (the one on Tinder/Hinge/Bumble) to make it with her, and they spent the next year writing, eating cookies, working through the occasional identity crisis, and becoming creative soul mates.
