“After We Collided”- What’s the plot?
Though based on Anna Todd’s book, the movie adaptation is slightly different from the book. Hardin has some hidden secrets and the revelations might strain their relationship once again. Tessa is already not happy that Hardin remains distant at times.
She isn’t quite sure if Hardin is sincere. At the same time, she doesn’t find it easy to part ways with him, as the times they spent together are too good to be missed. It is to this troubling situation that an uninvited guest barges in. As if their problems are not enough, the equation between Trevor and Hardin becomes yet another reason for Tessa to get worried.
When Tessa joins Vance Publishing as an intern, she is excited. She is ready to move to the next phase of her life. Her apprehensions about Hardin remain, and she remains cautious. She isn’t ready to face yet another breakup. Broken promises are not something that she can live with.
On the other hand, Hardin realizes his mistake and he wants to compensate for it. At the office, Tessa’s smart, handsome colleague Trevor tries to get close to her.
