Propelled by the pulsing beats of Toronto’s early hip hop scene, this groundbreaking Canadian film is the story of Michael (Lamar Johnson) and Francis, (Aaron Pierre) sons of Caribbean immigrants maturing into young men. Exploring themes of masculinity, identity and family, a mystery unfolds during the sweltering summer of 1991, and escalating tensions set off a series of events that change the course of the brothers’ lives forever. Brother crafts a timely story about the profound bond between siblings, the resilience of a community and the irrepressible power of music.
