THE NEXT BETTER PLACE - Based on the novel by Underground Voices' author Michael C. Keith
FEATURE-LENGTH MOVIE

Logline: A father and son take to the road, looking for employment, happiness, and a better life than the one they currently have.

“As someone who lost his father when I was 9 1/2 years old, I found Michael C. Keith's remarkable story of an irresponsible father and an 11-year-old boy both poignant and very, very real. This is a moving memoir. A life-enduring tale.” --Larry King, CNN

ABOUT THE NEXT BETTER PLACE
At the age of eleven, Michael Keith left a relatively stable life with his mother and sisters in Albany, New York, and surreptitiously set off for California with his irresponsible alcoholic father. For the rest of Michael's childhood, the two crisscrossed America, perpetually en route to someplace else. His memoir, told in the fresh, funny, world-wise voice of the young boy he once was, describes their bizarre encounters hitchhiking the nation's highways. In the rundown rooming houses and homeless missions where they hole up as Michael's father works odd jobs to make enough money for them to move on, or in the AA meetings they attend in every city for a decent doughnut, we glimpse a different America. Pushed onward by Michael's unceasing thirst for new adventures and his father's dreams of the next better place, the careworn twosome live far outside convention.
