Better Things

Synopsis

Better Things is a multi-narrative intergenerational tale set in the picturesque rural Cotswolds of present day England. Both the old and young are followed on their journeys of withdrawal and commitment to each other and to life. Sexual awakening, boredom, and drugs form but do not dictate the narrative, which always connects the poetic and transcendent.
