BETTER THIS WORLD

SYNOPSIS

Two boyhood friends from Midland, Texas – David McKay and Bradley Crowder – fall under the sway of a charismatic anti-corporate political activist ten years their senior.  At the volatile 2008 Republican Convention, the “Texas Two” cross a line that radically changes their lives. The result: eight homemade bombs, multiple domestic terrorism charges and a high stakes entrapment defense hinging on the actions of a controversial FBI informant. A dramatic story of idealism, loyalty, crime and betrayal, BETTER THIS WORLD goes to the heart of the War on Terror and illustrates its frightening impact on civil liberties and political dissent in post-9/11 America.
