BETTER THAN SEX is a story about three days in the life of a one night stand. A one night stand that goes wrong for all the right reasons.

When Cin (Susie Porter) and Josh (David Wenham), a wildlife photographer, meet at a party and they're instantly attracted to one another. They share a taxi ride home, both contemplating each other's next move and they opt for enjoyable sex for one night with each other. Josh likes Cin's sense of humor, finds her sexually appealing and knows he is due to return to London in 3 days. After a night of terrific sex at Cin's apartment both of them agree he might as well stay a little longer - what's the rush?

Enter Sam (Catherine McClements), a friend of Cin's who curiosity gets the better of her and is determined to meet Cin's mystery lover. Unable to resists flirting with Josh, Sam shatters Cin and Josh's intimacy bringing all of Cin's insecurities to the fore and angered Cin asks Sam to leave and then turns on Josh as well who also leaves.

It's not long before it dawns on both of them that their one night stand has become something more than either realised and Josh returns to Cin's apartment where for the first time they begin to deal with their feelings for each other. With Josh's impending flight, is there more to their relationship - something that is better than sex!
