Satire on modern consumerism: a suspiciously young widow discovers that grief makes the perfect fashion statement. A sensuous and darkly comical swipe at materialistic values, all seen and narrated from the widow's point of view from behind the veil. Written, produced and directed by Ian Kennedy and starring Hayleigh Power.

THE MOURNING AFTER is a wry and darkly comical satiric film that explores the darker side of consumerism, fashion and credit culture. A deluded woman whose hunger for new clothes cannot be satiated has finally reached her debt limit - and murdered her husband to free up the finance to get her latest fashion fix. In the process, she's discovering that grief itself makes for the perfect fashion statement, and being viewed with sympathy by strangers is the perfect mask for her spending spree. Soon enough she's coveting lingerie, bondage gear and buying her next wedding dress. Grief makes the perfect fashion statement, but only for a short time.
