The most thrilling and controversial entry at the 2004 Humana Festival, After Ashley is blisteringly funny and deeply poignant. Three years after his mother’s murder, 17-year old Justin can barely function. His father, on the other hand, has written a best-selling book about the crime and scored his own television talk show. America may be ready for a mega-marketing blitz of Justin’s murdered mom, but he isn’t. A scathing satire that takes on our media’s obsession with victims and violence, After Ashley explores the seed of potential buried in life’s darkest moments.
