In Better Late, according to a press release, "composer Lee Baer (Sarandon) is forced by his wife Nora (Gleason) to take in her ex-husband Julian (Wolpe) after a recent stroke. Tension builds between the two as Julian makes it more and more difficult for Lee to get any songs written. Family and relationship dynamics are tested when Julian and Nora's son Billy (Socarides) reveals that he is going through a divorce of his own. How long will Julian stay and how long will it take until Lee cracks?"
