After the Fire follows residents of Sonoma Valley as they struggle to find their places in a community that has been reshaped overnight by the historic Northern California wildfires. It is an intimate look at what they’ve lost, what they’ve gained, and what happens next, after the fire. This film highlights the often overlooked, overwhelming effects of massive climate emergencies, after the media crews have moved on.
