Powerful and Inspiring Film That Shares a Battle with Faith, Forgiveness and PTSD, Releasing to Home Entertainment
Available on DVD and VOD May 11
After an incredible theatrical launch as venues re-opened throughout the US, the feature-length drama “My Brother’s Keeper” is preparing for its release to home entertainment. In a partnership between Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and Collide Distribution, “My Brother’s Keeper” will release on DVD and all major VOD platforms on May 11, 2021. The film shares a powerful story of faith and forgiveness in the wake of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
“My Brother’s Keeper” was directed by Kevan Otto (“A Question Of Faith”, “Forgiven”) and written by US Army Veteran Ty Manns (“A Question Of Faith”, “The 5th Quarter”). The film stars TC Stallings (“War Room”, “A Question Of Faith”), Joey Lawrence (“Melissa & Joey”, “Blossom”, “Hawaii Five-0”), Robert Ri’chard (“Coach Carter”, “Empire”), and Keshia Knight Pulliam (“The Cosby Show”).
“It was so encouraging that many theaters across the US re-opened their theaters with ‘My Brother’s Keeper,’ a desperately needed story of hope,” shares Manns. “It is also an incredible honor that the film was able to play on military bases and at the National Infantry Museum. We pray that, as the film becomes available to larger audiences through home entertainment, the story continues to give encouragement to those struggling with issues of PTSD, forgiveness, and loss. A reminder that, no matter what the situation, there is always hope.”
“My Brother’s Keeper” shares the story of returning war veteran SFC Travis Fox (TC Stallings) who has one more battle to fight–PTSD. Fox and his best friend SFC Ron “Preach” Pearcy (Joey Lawrence) are in their 6th combat deployment when Preach and his entire Ranger platoon are killed in a deadly improvised explosive device attack. Travis returns to his hometown to settle the affairs of his parents who had passed away years before. In searching for answers about his parents, he also discovers a new obstacle in PTSD. He finds support from church counselor, Tiffany Robertson (Keshia Knight-Pulliam) and slowly begins to rediscover his faith in God, until he discovers a secret. Travis uncovers a secret hidden by his best friend Donnie Berry (Robert Ri’chard) that threatens his new-found faith, restores his guilt, and causes him to consider the unthinkable.
