BETTER THINGS is a multi narrative drama depicting everyday life in small town England. We follow several characters dealing in their own particular way with their relationships.

As a day dawns in the Cotswolds a funeral is taking place that will have bitter repercussions for some of the community. Close by Rachel (Megan Palmer) and Larry (Kurt Taylor) are reeling against a first love gone wrong. Meanwhile Mr Gladwin (Frank Bench) refuses to speak to Mrs Gladwin (Betty Bench) over events of a long time ago.

Following on from his multi award winning and critically acclaimed short films Duane Hopkins presents a painterly view of existence against a rarely seen rural backdrop and its separate generation's approach to life, love, loss and intoxication.
