Since 1985, with the establishment of the Mitterrand doctrine which protected Itailian ex-militants from being extradited, Marco has lived in France without notice, conforming to civilian life and raising a daughter. But everything changes in 2002 when a university professor is murdered—echoing the real-life assassination of Italian jurist Marco Biagi—and his freedom is put on the line. The father takes his daughter, Viola, on the run, and they end up in a remote part of France. As the implications of exile starts to dawn on the teenage Viola, tensions rise between the father and daughter. Meanwhile, Marco's estranged family in Italy pays, once again, for its association with a terrorist.

Annarita Zambrano's first feature film, After the War is expertly crafted, and is both a study on familial bonds and a somber look at a man’s cycle of confronting, and avoiding, the shadows of the past.
