Summary
"Filmmaker Attiya Khan was 16 when she dated Steve. Now, two decades later, here they are again, sitting across from each other, not to reminisce but to process. In a powerful act of restorative justice, they've come together to talk through their violent relationship. What drove Steve to abuse Attiya daily during the two years they were together? Illuminating a new paradigm for domestic-violence prevention, A Better Man offers a fresh and nuanced look at the healing and revelation that can happen for everyone involved when men take responsibility for their abuse"-Container
