On a night 22 years ago, 18-year-old Attiya Khan ran through the streets, frightened for her life. She was fleeing her ex-boyfriend Steve, who’d been abusing her on a daily basis. Now, all these years later, Attiya has asked Steve to meet. She wants to know if he is willing to take responsibility for his violent actions. This emotionally raw first meeting, filmed by Attiya with Steve’s consent, is the starting point. The rough footage also marks a new beginning in Attiya’s recovery process—as well as an important starting point for Steve. For the first time ever, he speaks of the abuse and opens the door to dealing with the past. Illuminating a new paradigm for domestic-violence prevention, "A Better Man" offers a fresh look at the healing and revelation that can happen for everyone involved when men take responsibility for their abuse. It also empowers audience members to play new roles in challenging domestic violence, whether it’s in their own relationships or as part of a broader movement for social change. --National Film Board of Canada
