It is America in the 1950s and four families play out their lives in varying parts of the county. Sarah Robbins, a single mother and night club singer from Ohio is forced to take a hard look at herself and her son. Neil Dvorak, a cabinet maker from Michigan, clings to the notion of "ideal family" and hope for redemption thru the birth of his daughter Victoria. In Alabama, Dolores Drake, a mother of three, battles an abusive husband and racism. Even the wealthy and privileged Strattons in California are not immune from loss and tragedy. No one can predict the twists and turns in the lives of these families as high stakes drama and devastating results ensue when their lives intersect. The first in a trilogy, Better Days Ahead follows families as they struggle with their lives, loves and longings and reach for hope and new possibilities.
