  • A young boy poses as a street-hardened gangster in order to impress his older brother, putting them both on a treacherous path that could destroy their family in this gritty urban drama. Mo (Fady Elsayed) is an isolated 14-year-old boy who longs to be accepted by his peers. His older brother Rashid (James Floyd) runs with a local gang and earns enough money to support their family. In Mo's eyes, there's nobody cooler than "Rash," and in a desperate bid to prove his manhood, the sensitive younger sibling accepts a dangerous job. Unfortunately, his actions will have unforeseen consequences that could ruin both brothers' lives.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[A] propulsive, stylishly shot drama....El Hosaini mixes non-professionals with trained actors, adding to the authenticity of the milieu."
    Hollywood Reporter

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n intimate, closely observed character piece....The bold change of direction seals the film's credentials..."
    Total Film

    "The strength of the film is that it looks at brotherly love and its possible disintegration from the inside out...It gives its characters the benefit of a soul..."
    Sight and Sound

    "Nuances of faith, politics and sexual identity enrich what initially presents as a classic good son-bad son tale....The skill of the performers and the compassion of their director communicate just fine."
    New York Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "El Hosaini's voice remains crisp, cool and consistently street-smart."
