DIEGO DIAZ (Nick Puga) is feeling a little lost. Newly married, and desperate to become a published novelist before his type-A wife, MARIANA (Edy Ganem), gets pregnant, Diego heads down to Miami Beach for a few weeks to finish his latest book, before Mariana is to join him for their friend’s August wedding.
But once in Miami, the well meaning, yet easily distracted, Diego finds a diversion in VANESSA (Kandis Erickson), the attractive, live-in-the moment bartender he meets by the pool.
And what starts off as an innocent friendship, with lazy days hanging out on the beach and partying with her colorful friends, soon becomes a temptation for Diego, as Vanessa makes it clear she is open to more than just friendship.
Eventually Diego is made to choose between the girl he barely knows, but promises the adventure he’s always secretly yearned for, and his wife whom he loves, but who wants him to settle down into a more traditional life.
Funny, romantic, and honest, AFTER THE WEDDING is an intimate portrait of a young couple navigating their new roles as husband and wife, and contemplates traditional love in a modern age.
