A bride comes on to a priest in a motel room. A bouquet of flowers from a stranger takes on a life of its own. A man's last day at the office proves to be the longest day of all. It's family moving day, but no one's moving. This is Something Better Somewhere Else - a collective tale of yearning and restlessness told through four distinct but thematically linked stories. Inspired by the best short story collections and the almost lost art of the concept album, the film explores the question: Why is that who and where we are so often pales in comparison to who and where we imagine we could be? By turns romantic, harrowing and funny, the stories of Something Better Somewhere Else follow the odd adventures of people who step outside of their everyday lives to see if there really is something better.
