Weaved together by an assemblage of aesthetically and emotionally rich interviews, an extraordinary array of archival material and verite footage, The Best Part of Everything explores an American family facing their hopes, dreams, ambitions, and regrets as the 20-something children face the real world and the parents prepare for an empty nest and retirement.
