SynopsisTraces of my Brother - Poster

Max mourns the death of his brother, trying desperately to fill his shoes. But the boy becomes increasingly alienated from his family, the next disaster only a matter of time…

 

A boy is on the verge of adolescence and his world in the middle of war. And the world implodes upon him and his family. His brother – who once marched off proudly to fight amidst his family’s celebration has fallen, leaving the boy in deep mourning and his family disillusioned. Determined to follow in his brother’s footsteps, the boy searches for acceptance and orientation. He finally gets his hands on a red enlistment paper, but this supposed ticket to glory only stirs up the family’s many conflicts -and his own. Is peace possible at least for this one family?
