Its 1968 and Min is planning her 90th birthday party. Half the Connar clan isnt speaking to the other half and the town is filled with eccentric characters whose secret and public histories are interwoven with each other and with the history of the town. Better Than Life celebrates all the blessings and bruisings of blood ties, and explores the emotional misfires that can hamper the most precious of human connections with poignancy and wry humour.
