In The Award-Winning “The Sweet Hereafter,” Death Comes With Unforeseen Trauma

July 24, 2017 —  A school bus crashes through a barrier into a lake. 

Who is responsible—the bus, the town, the bus driver? And who is supposed to tell the parents?

A lawyer convinces the parents of the children affected by the accident that they need to sue as a means of getting back at the people who should be held responsible. But who is responsible? And does the lawyer have motives of his own that make him eager to sue?

No one’s motives are simple—everything gets confused. Values are interwoven and torn apart. Lives are changed forever. Truth is muddied and variable.

The Sweet Hereafter is based on a real event and an award-winning book of the same name.
