Storyline

Exactly how much risk would you take to save your brother? For Van Nguyen the answer was whatever it takes and the devastating consequence of his attempt to traffic heroin from Cambodia to Australia via a change of planes in Singapore was that the 396 grams of drugs that he was discovered carrying was enough to incur the death penalty - 26 times over. Written by Stephen Corvini

It is amazing
11 August 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I myself as a young high school student of the 21st century Australian society was so captivated by this series. Although I was quite bewildered with the story line at first and even at some point resented the fact that the crew did not acknowledge Mr Van's family emotions before documenting this series as it could be quite traumatizing to relive what a mother's worst nightmare, their child's death. I also found that there was quite a fair amount of swearing involved but i surpassed that factor. However, the more time i invested into to watching this series the more i received a thorough understanding of the drug addictions within the Asian culture and how dominant it can be to the extent that a family can become unified to solve this predicament. "Better man" has it share of agony, sentiments, drama and all of those themes that would compel any person into watching and analyzing how determination of a brother's will to help another would lead to his own tragedy. Overall, this series was well portrayed and presented and I was pleased to watch this dramatically heart-felt series.
