GET BETTER follows a week in the life of Ellie Alexander (Marisa Viola) and her chronically ill father, Roy (Robert Linder). Ellie’s established routine strikes a balance between the needs of her father, the demands of her boss, Jane Preston (Lise Anzelone), and the advances of her on-again, off-again romantic interest, Mike Smith (Chris White). This delicate balance gets disrupted; however, with the arrival of her childhood friend, Pam Stuart (Monica Wyche) — a New York producer who comes to town to document Roy’s life and winds up exposing the wounds and resentments caused by Roy's disease.
