Morning After is directed by Patricia Chica, written by Kristian Hodko and produced by Patricia Chica (Flirt Films) and Byron A. Martin (Byron A. Martin Productions). It’s a bold and playful drama that explores the subject of sexual fluidity, queer energy and human desire. This poignant and moving coming-of-age tale perfectly captures the challenges and tribulations of five friends who decide one night to explore their sexuality and realize that they may not fall within societies’ clean-cut lines.
After a long time abroad, a young man returns home and reunites with friends. A sensual game amongst them forces him to confront deep conflicts within himself that lead to a powerful awakening.

“I wanted to speak about human connection, energy and sexual enlightenment from a fresh perspective other than the LGBTQ or heterosexual’s points of view. I wanted to make a film about desire and arousal that would go beyond the conventional physical realm… a deeper and perhaps more spiritual approach to sexuality, self-expression and self-acceptance. Morning After is intended to leave you feeling expanded,” says director Patricia Chica.
