Simone Horrocks' first feature revolves around the disintegration of a man's life, after his daughter goes missing. Horrocks relocates Stephen Blanchard's novel The Paraffin Child from a washed-up UK coastal community to West Auckland/Piha. Outrageous Fortune talent Antony Starr plays the forest ranger who separates from his wife, then learns she is pregnant to the policeman investigating his child's disappearance. Horrocks says After the Waterfall investigates healing, resilience, and "how we live with unfinished business". 

I think Ant (Starr)’s performance is incredible, throughout the film. He’d been working with Simone for a long time so the character was under his skin, it had, towards the later stage, become part of him, and I think he was ready for the role.
– After the Waterfall producer Trevor Haysom
