More than 20 years have passed when filmmaker Attiya Khan asks her ex-boyfriend Steve to talk on camera, searching to answer a question that is both simple and incredibly complicated: Will Steve take responsibility? Through emotionally raw conversations, Attiya and Steve begin a new recovery process– and illustrate a new paradigm for domestic violence prevention. A BETTER MAN follows this bold and radical exploration of restorative justice and offers a nuanced look at the healing and revelation that can happen when men take responsibility for their abusive behavior. “ Startling. Intense. The documentary’s cleverness is that it resists the roundness of resolution or catharsis, while also acknowledging that Khan and Steve will always remain some kind of asymmetrical unit. ” - The New Yorker “ A call to action for abusive men to stand up and take responsibility for their anger and their actions. ” - The Guardian “ A revolutionary documentary. The next step in helping others find new ways to heal. ” - Vulture
