When his young daughter's beloved companion -- an android named Yang -- malfunctions, Jake (Colin Farrell) searches for a way to repair him. In the process, Jake discovers the life that has been passing in front of him, reconnecting with his wife (Jodie Turner-Smith) and daughter across a distance he didn't know was there.
Jake and his wife Kyra live with their adoptive children Mika and Yang – a previously owned robotic child purchased from Brothers & Sisters Incorporated. Mika is intensely attached to her companion and becomes distressed when faced with losing him. Not wanting to upset his daughter, Jake attempts to repair the unresponsive Yang – only to discover a complex web of hidden memories and relationships in a microchip.
This science-fiction feature from writer/director Kogonada follows his brilliant and intelligent debut Columbus, delving into similar conversations of what it means to be human in the context of a synthetic dystopia.
"Poignant and poetic, After Yang is a soulful and heartbreaking meditation on impermanence full of poignant wonder and riches of human grace."

"Colin Farrell has never been better."
- LA TIMES
"Kogonada's After Yang, takes the genre at its most minimalistic and personal… in the best movie about A.I. in years."
"After Yang moves slowly and quietly and then comes in like a tidal wave, exploring grief and love and memory with aching poignance."
