AFTER THE DATE is a romance genre short film. The story develops a romance between a heterosexual, cisgender man and a transgender woman, and the film reveals how oppression can bring two people together, rather than tear them apart.
The film shows a happy and healthy romance between a straight man, NATE, and a transgender woman, EMMA. Her transgender status is not an issue to Nate. However, they deal with a small incident of police harassment. She is an amateur photographer, and she is technically trespassing at the Divine Lorraine to take a few photographs. A cop IDs her, and finds that she has not updated the gender on her license. The cop harasses her, and later, the couple make a complaint at the police station. The conflict gets out of hand, and Nate is arrested for disorderly conduct.
