Aftersun is the debut film of director Charlotte Wells and has already received numerous positive reviews around the world. On Rotten Tomatoes, the critics' approval index is 96%, which indicates that the film is incredibly well shot. The film takes viewers into the world of Sophie's memories, exploring the theme of loss and love through the story of her father and her early teenage years.

In the film, Paul Mescal plays a young father who has abandoned his family but later tries to build a strong relationship with his daughter by inviting her to spend a vacation with him alone. They went to the seaside in Turkey. After 20 years, she recalls certain fragments of that period of her life and tries to understand their true value.
