From the director of About a Boy and the producers of A Single Man and In Good Company comes A BETTER LIFE – a touching, poignant, multi-generational story about a father’s love and the lengths a parent will go to build a better life for his child.
Carlos Galindo always dreamed of a better life for his wife and newborn son when he crossed the border into the US. But when his wife left him, wanting more than he could give, Carlos’s only goal became to make sure his son Luis was given the opportunities he never had. After years of hard work and trying to set an example for his son, he still finds himself drifting apart from Luis, who is at an impressionable teen age where succumbing to peer pressure could lead him down a dangerous path. Seeing a way to control their own destiny, Carlos takes what little money he has and invests it all into his own gardening business, which he believes is their only chance to stay together and finally achieve the better life he always envisioned for his son.
However, after an unexpected turn of events, when everything he’s worked for is suddenly taken away, it is Luis, despite years of growing apart, who teams up with Carlos to take it back. Together, father and son embark on a physical and spiritual journey where they discover something more important – that family is the most important part of the American dream.
