Synopsis

A prank goes wrong and threatens to take everyone involved down with it in this independent thriller. Frank (Jon Foster) is the president of a college fraternity who takes a special pride in berating his brothers and terrorizing new pledges. Frank decides to cap off Hell Week by demanding a special show of loyalty -- each prospective frat member is given a gun and ordered to rob a convenience store. What the pledges don't know is a house brother is supposed to follow them and keep them from using the gun, but Kevin (Lou Taylor Pucci) ends up at the wrong store and no one is there to stop him from pulling his gun. Kevin is shot by Mike (Arlen Escarpeta), the store's night clerk, and when the wounded man returns to the frat house, another pledge, Adam (Trevor Morgan), tries to convince Frank to get him to a doctor before he bleeds to death. Frank, however, doesn't want himself or the house implicated in the incident; instead, he sends Adam to the store to bring back Mike and clear away any evidence. Adam discovers that Mike is someone he knew from high school who isn't intimidated by him and has no interest in helping him clear up the mess Frank has made. Brotherhood was the first feature film from writer and director Will Canon. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
