The faith-based film My Brother’s Keeper will arrive on DVD and VOD May 11 from Collide Distribution in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
The film, which shares a story of faith and forgiveness in the wake of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, was directed by Kevan Otto (A Question of Faith, Forgiven) and written by U.S. Army Veteran Ty Manns (A Question of Faith, The 5th quarter). The film stars T.C. 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”).
My Brother’s Keeper follows the story of returning war veteran SFC Travis Fox (Stallings), who has one more battle to fight — PTSD. Fox and his best friend Ron “Preach” Pearcy (Lawrence) are in their sixth 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 (Knight-Pulliam) and slowly begins to rediscover his faith in God, until he uncovers a secret hidden by his best friend Donnie Berry (Ri’chard) that threatens his new-found faith, restores his guilt and causes him to consider the unthinkable.
The film also had a theatrical run.
“It was so encouraging that many theaters across the U.S. re-opened their theaters with My Brother’s Keeper, a desperately needed story of hope,” Manns said in a statement. “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.”
