PRESS RELEASE

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

IN A BETTER WORLD sets out to explore the limitations we encounter in trying to control our society as well as our personal lives.

It asks whether our own "advanced" culture is the model for a better world, or whether the same disarray found in lawlessness is lurking beneath the surface of our civilization.

Are we immune to chaos, or obliviously teetering on the verge of disorder?

-Susanne Bier

In a Better World

SYNOPSIS

Anton is a doctor who commutes between his home in an idyllic town in Denmark, and his work at an African refugee camp. In these two very different worlds, he and his family are faced with conflicts that lead them to difficult choices between revenge and forgiveness.

Anton and his wife Marianne, who have two young sons, are separated and struggling with the possibility of divorce. Their older, ten-year-old son Elias is being bullied at school, until he is defended by Christian, a new boy who has just moved from London with his father, Claus. Christian's mother recently lost her battle with cancer, and Christian is greatly troubled by her death.

Elias and Christian quickly form a strong bond, but when Christian involves Elias in a dangerous act of revenge with potentially tragic consequences, their friendship is tested and lives are put in danger. Ultimately, it is their parents who are left to help them come to terms with the complexity of human emotions, pain and empathy.
