Mo is a young boy growing up in a traditional Egyptian household, but beyond the front door of the family’s modest London flat lie the streets of Hackney. The impressionable Mo idolizes his charismatic older brother Rashid. However, Rashid wants a different life for his little brother and will do whatever it takes to put him through college. Aching to be seen as a tough guy himself, Mo takes a job that unlocks a fateful turn of events and forces the brothers to confront their inner demons. A galvanizing twist on the gangster film subgenre, MY BROTHER pulses with surprise.
