  • Synopsis

    Set in a Northern Ireland seaside town, All Being Well examines the issue of parental conflict. Jim and Betty's marriage has turned sour, their household seen as a war zone by their son Declan. He dreams of creating his own perfect relationship with Anne whom he adores from afar but is afraid to approach in case his dreams are shattered. With the help of friend Gerry, he eventually, like his parents, begins to plot a difficult path between dream and reality, and to take a risk on love.
