The Afterlife shows the fragility of contemporary life, how uttering a single insult ignites a conflict that leaves a young man dead. In the restroom of a nightclub, Chuy, the good-natured protagonist, remarks to a boy his age wearing yellow shoes, “I like your shoes.” The hot-tempered teen feels he’s being made fun of and stabs Chuy to death. Dead, Chuy floats in a ghostly limbo meeting Crystal, a suicide victim with her own tragic story and a homeless woman, dying on the street. The story shuttles between the experience of loss and anger felt both by the living left behind and those who have passed on.
