Doc Edge - After the Rain

Run time:
104 mins
Release date:
25 June 2022

After an earthquake razed the Chinese city of Sichuan to the ground in 2008, more than 6,000 parents were encouraged to replace the child they lost and move on. Due to the One-Child Policy, these parents lost the only child they had. Over a decade, filmmaker Jian Fan follows two couples who originally connected because they had both lost daughters named “Rain”. The couples become close friends through the shared experience of introducing new children into their shaken families. Haunted by fear, resentment, and unspeakable grief, the families find hope beyond intergenerational trauma to build towards a brighter tomorrow. Executive Produced by Doc Edge alumni Jean Tsien (Our Time Machine, Plastic China).
