Few people think about a sudden death, including Tony. Thoughts of such things did not go to him, so the news of the death of his wife became unbearable for him. A cancerous tumor caused a fleeting illness. Having no strength to live on, Tony decides to take a desperate act – he tries to commit suicide.
When will the series “After Life Season 2” be released?
Continuation of the dramatic series “After Life” will appear on April 24, 2020. It is interesting to observe the life of a person who decided to meet every day in a new way, trying to forget about his sad past.
Beloved wife was for Tony the whole world. He appreciated family comfort, as many men sometimes neglected domestic duties, but in general terms it can be called an excellent family man. There were often guests in their house, and Tony and his wife welcomed them in due form. To lose all these charms meant for a man one thing – the end of life.
The sudden death of his wife made Tony look at the familiar world differently. The constant feeling of apathy and endless depression led Tony to start thinking about a suicide attempt. After the decision on such a step, a grieving man started to fulfill his plans. But at the crucial moment, Tony realized that his favorite dog remained in his care.
With a broad soul, a man can not afford to leave the dog without owner. Realizing that suicide does not solve all his problems, Tony finds a new way out for himself. He wants to live the rest of his life as if every day is the last. This is exactly what he had never done before. Now he is not shy about expressing his feelings, often helping the homeless, spending a lot of time walking his dog.
His work colleagues stopped recognizing him, since Tony had changed greatly in character. Keeping the former calm, now he can easily give a beating to people who have decided to encroach on his personal space. It would seem – Tony began to come to his senses – but this is only outwardly. Coming home, he, as before, drowns his grief in alcohol and watching TV.
In the season 2, the protagonist will continue to mourn for the deceased wife, but this will come into the background, as Tony will begin new worries and problems. Now he needs to resort to new methods in the struggle for his happiness, but does he have enough strength to re-engage with life? A man is stronger than he thinks, but he must understand this himself…
