After Masks 2021 DVD Cover – Synopsis
When the pandemic checks who we are as people and as a society, take a journey through the human condition. COVID-19 has forced us to confront our fears of losing our careers, being alone together, and facing death.
But a ray of optimism always shines through as we hope for unity, accept the spirit of survival, and remember that, though we can bend, we are never destroyed. All has a tale to tell. How are you, what’s yours?
The five distinct stories, each covering a different subject, were each created and directed separately and are effortlessly woven together with interstitial artistic commentary by narrator Mitchell Hoog (Saved by The Bell 2020).
So, how are different people coping with the pandemic and all of its consequences, including lockdowns?
Winners: Arya (Alexandra Rodriguez) goes about her business as usual, even though she has to sit inside for a while – but her coerced confidence leaves her more vulnerable to bad news…
Ushering the Light: Still grieving about the death of their son, a Jewish couple (Drea Berg, Brandon Shaffer) tries to get through the pandemic, including Passover, without the physical assistance of their families…
Hold on: As the Black Lives Matter campaign gains traction, young African-American Farida (Tayo Amos) continues to face racial injustice at college, and she must find a way to channel her anger because she is unable to attend any demonstrations due to lockout…
Clownfish: Jamie (Lindsay Sparks) is dealing with the death of her husband as well as the depression that comes with being on lockout, and in order to cope with her new solitude, she is increasingly becoming her deceased boyfriend…
Quarantales: In what turns out to be a months-long quarantine, people from all over the country and from all walks of life try to overcome their demons, such as getting their relationship in order (Amber Lynn Ashley) or learning to play the guitar (Zachariah West), becoming a standup comedian (Gretchen Ho), or tackling their weight problems (Laramie Williams).
