Rocky Braat’s first trip to India was a journey of self-discovery. While there, he visited a care centre for women and children living with HIV and AIDS. It proved to be a life-transforming encounter. Despite never really liking children, Braat returns to Pittsburgh announcing he’ll be moving to India to work at the centre. Bewildered by Braat’s decision, director and best friend Steve Hoover decides to follow him on his journey. Expecting to find him making all the wrong decisions, Hoover discovers a very different story, and both men find their lives and those of the children are changed forever. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award for US Documentary at Sundance, Blood Brother is a story of true conviction and dedication that reaches beyond doing aid work for personal gratification.
