Better Man tells the powerful account of a young man desperately trying to provide for his family, for which he paid the ultimate price. A four-part dramatization based on the true story of Van Nguyen, a Vietnamese-Australian, widely known as 'The Baby of Death Row'.
From the tough but loving upbringing that Van shared with his twin brother and devoted mother, to the gripping and heart-stopping events following his arrest in Singapore having been convicted of drug trafficking and sentenced with the death penalty. This confronting story culminates in an extraordinary three-year legal battle led by Melbourne lawyer, Julian McMahon and Melbourne QC, Lex Lasry to save the young man's life.
