Two brothers in their early 20s, one black, one white, each the other's keeper since their family was torn apart by a decade old tragedy.

Neville becomes enchanted with Niko, a beguiling young singer who becomes entangled with him on his journey of self-discovery. With the support of their long-time friend Julian and Sister Sarah, a nun with a past, Neville and Matthew come to understand love in all its forms. Written by Conquering Lion Productions/FilmWorks

A very absorbing film about a blended family.
23 November 2001 | by (San Pedro, California) – See all my reviews

I knew nothing about this film before I saw it on Black Starz, a pay channel on cable. I loved the way the director/writer mingled past and present in the film, revealing a family mystery and source of anguish to two brothers. The acting was superb. I am looking forward to more films by this writer/director. He is immensely talented and original. At times viseral and passionate, at times wispy and poetic, this was a work of great art.
