A Better Life

Synopsis

Yann (Guillaume Canet), a cook, and Nadia (Leila Bekhti), a waitress and mother of 9-year-old boy, decide to risk everything on the purchase of a restaurant. With plenty of talent, energy, love and dreams, but no finances of their own, they find themselves pushed into a jungle of financing and loans that quickly overwhelms them. To bail them out, Nadia takes a job in Canada, while Yann stays behind to save the restaurant. Together, he and the boy (Slimane Khettabi) confront relentless creditors, an uncaring system; a daily grind from which there is no respite until Yann finally understands that his only chance of salvation lies in joining Nadia in Canada and finding a better life.
