Set in the future, Apple TV+’s new movie ‘Swan Song’ will showcase the journey of a man’s love and for his family
Produced by Apple, Anonymous Content, Mahershala Ali, and others, the futuristic ‘Swan Song’ movie is a “genre-bending drama” written and directed by renowned Academy Award-winner Benjamin Clear which tells the story of a man Milo (played by Mahershala Ali) and his love and extend of sacrifice for the people he loves.
Set in the near future, “Swan Song” is a powerful, emotional journey told through the eyes of Cameron (Mahershala Ali), a loving husband and father diagnosed with a terminal illness who is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief. As Cam grapples with whether or not to alter his family’s fate, he learns more about life and love than he ever imagined. “Swan Song” explores how far we will go, and how much we’re willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love. – Apple TV+
