Rocky Braat, a young man from a fractured family, decides to travel through India. While in India, he meets a group of HIV positive children living in an orphanage — this chance encounter changes everything for him and he decides to move to India permanently.  Steve Hoover, Rocky’s best friend (and a filmmaker), is unsettled and intrigued by this drastic action. In an effort to find out what compelled Rocky to give up every source of stability in his life, Hoover follows him back to India to trace his story.

‘Blood Brother’ is a story about friendship. It’s a story about life. Most of all, it’s a story about love.

An incredibly moving and inspiring debut feature.

Sundance Film Festival 

Documentaries don't come any bigger-hearted -- almost from the get-go, is so engaging and joyful that word of mouth could well make it a viable theatrical proposition.


An incisive and compassionate documentary that’s as much a transformative experience for audiences as it was for the filmmakers.

The Hollywood Reporter

If anyone doubts that their film could ever get into Sundance without any connections, they should think again. This film just rose up among the thousands of submissions.

Sundance Film Festival

A truly beautiful film about the power of love.”

Morgan Spurlock of Super Size Me

This film shook us to our very core… It is a delicate character study. Exuberant. Heartbreaking. Transcendent. And profoundly, moving.

Davis Guggenheim director: Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman

This gorgeously shot film is also a deeply affecting psychological portrait of a young do-gooder as he adapts to the regularity of tragedy in his new life.
