The unmistakable power of love is celebrated in this story of one young man's decision to move to India and restart his life. He arrives in India as a disillusioned tourist, but Rocky's life changes when he meets a group of children living in an orphanage with HIV. He decides to stay and devote his life to them, while his best friend, Director Steve Hoover, chronicles his transformative story in this beautifully crafted and personal film.
Unlike others who simply passed through the lives of these children, Rocky "Anna", which means brother, joins their community as caretaker, learning to deal with all the challenges of loving and parenting children who face life and death situations daily. Rocky discovers his playful spirit and determination in the face of despair are an invaluable resource and in BLOOD BROTHER he ultimately reminds us that a truly meaningful life can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places.
