Thomas and Marion are high school sweethearts. Eight years after graduation, Thomas returns and meets Marion again. In the course of the first hour they are together, their lives will be changed forever. “To Better Days” is a short film about unrequited love, rekindling old flames, adultery and murder. Although it seems that this film has cliché elements, it was a major portion of the design of this film to use setting almost as character. The script was inspired by Jim Thompson's novels namely The Getaway and The Killer Inside Me.

Rocket House Pictures, independently produced and distributed this short film along with executive producer John Bertrand.
