Description

MY BROTHER tells the story of a young Spanish, Alberto, who have fled as far as possible from her conservative family. He lives in Berlin with her partner, and works as an illustrator of comics. But an unexpected event forces him to return to his suffocating Castilian village and confront not only their own origins but lies who created to survive. To save his guilty he will try to change the future of their tragedy through fiction, as best he can do, drawing. It is a story that takes us from a cosmopolitan, artistic and free world into a deep and hypocritical Spain, that still remains depressed despite the achievements of our society.
