Tonmai (Panupong Waraeaksiri) takes his journey from America, back to his home country, Thailand to learn that he has inherited a gay bar from his father. Tonmai plans to close the bar, but falls in love with Tonlew (Bell Nuntita - Thailand's Got Talent), a tomboy ladyboy and bar's driver. Now, Tonmai questions if is he is gay or straight.

Din (Pavich Subrungroj), a high school boy, begins his journey when his father, displeased with Din's feminine behavior, sends him away to be a novice priest, expecting Din to be healed. However, Din falls in love with Luang Pee Sang (Kisthachapon Tananara), his priest mentor.

In a world where some believe what they are told to believe, others search for their own truth. When the search leads to love, can circumstances demand that this truth be denied? Come experience the journeys of these three loving souls in this courageous and heartfelt film, "It Gets Better".
