"I wrote MY BROTHER'S KEEPER to, in part, share my father's personal battle with PTSD," shares Ty Manns, writer of the film and President and CEO of Manns Mackie Studios. "We are realizing that, as we are starting to resume life after the pandemic, struggles with issues of faith, fear, depression, and PTSD go far beyond the military. We pray that MY BROTHER'S KEEPER will help families realize that help is available, and that they do not have to suffer alone." Bishop Charles Mackie, Executive Producer and COO of Manns Mackie Studios, continues, "MY BROTHER'S KEEPER faces tough issues head-on and gives real hope and help to viewers."
MY BROTHER'S KEEPER shares the story of returning war veteran SFC Travis Fox (TC Stallings) who has one more battle to fight - PTSD. Fox and his best friend SFC Ron "Preach" Pearcy (Joey Lawrence) are in their 6th 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 (Keshia Knight-Pulliam) and slowly begins to rediscover his faith in God, until he discovers a secret. Travis uncovers a secret hidden by his best friend Donnie Berry (Robert Ri'chard) that threatens his new-found faith, restores his guilt, and causes him to consider the unthinkable.
MY BROTHER'S KEEPER was directed by Kevan Otto (A QUESTION OF FAITH, FORGIVEN) and written by US Army Veteran Ty Manns (A QUESTION OF FAITH, THE 5TH QUARTER). The film stars TC 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).
