Synopsis:

Adapted from the critically acclaimed musical stage production, Year After Year chronicles the dissolving years of seven friends in their late twenties as they navigate the tumultuous waters of hollow careers, lost ambition, forgotten dreams and the relationships that matter most, even when they can’t recognize it. 

Bill is “celebrating” his 28th birthday with his closest friends; Hunter, his best friend, is an ultra successful photographer living in London, Todd and Rachel are couple teetering on the edge of divorce, Peter and Laura have been dating since college and are looking towards the next step and Kate, who has known Bill for as long as she can remember, is trying to negotiate her love for him and her need to let go.

As another year passes by, Year After Year examines how even the most nuanced moments in our lives can have a monumental impact on our decisions and our future. 

Featuring a hilarious and touching screenplay, a contemporary pop/rock score and one of the industry’s most exciting new filmmakers, Year After Year is a film for anyone who has ever known what it is to feel alive and for those of us still looking for the answer.
