It stars Kildare actor Mescal as Calum alongside Frankie Corio as Calum's daughter Sophie and Celia Rowlson-Hall as the adult Sophie.

The synopsis reads: "Sophie reflects on the shared joy and private melancholy of a holiday she took with her father twenty years earlier.

"Memories real and imagined fill the gaps between as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn't."

A release date for Aftersun has yet to be announced.
