After 3: How It Starts?
After 3 begins with the return of Richard, Tessa’s alcoholic father ( Josephine Langford ), who wants to try to restore a relationship with her after years of absence. At first, Hardin ( Hero Finnies ) appears reluctant to the idea but ultimately decides to welcome the man into the house for the sake of his girlfriend.
Tessa, meanwhile, is considering moving to Seattle to continue her job as an editor at the publishing house of Christian and Kimberly, close friends of Hardin’s mom. Tessa’s choice to move puts a lot of pressure on the young man, who has no intention of following her and is afraid of facing the consequences of a long-distance relationship.
To relieve this pressure, Hardin and Richard find themselves drinking together in a bar one night. The situation, however, quickly gets out of hand. Both drunk men find themselves in the middle of a fight, and only Tessa’s intervention puts the situation in order. So, for the sake of his daughter, Richard decides to go away with a friend but promises Tessa to stay in touch with her.
