Blood Brother is the story of a group of children infected with HIV and Rocky Braat, a disenchanted young American that met them while drifting through India.

Critic Reviews for Blood Brother
In contrast to social-issue films filled with talking-head experts and bullet-point graphs, this is a portrait of a caregiver that goes to the core of motivation -- in this case, the need to share love.
Blood Brother is about as well-meaning as a doc can be, yet its humanitarian message is often tainted by the ceaseless demands for attention stemming from the fragile ego of its subject, rootless young American Rocky Braat.
A deeply affecting psychological portrait of a young do-gooder as he adapts to the regularity of tragedy in his new life.
"Love is making someone who is sad feel happy," one girl says, answering an interviewer's question. "Blood Brother" showed me that love. I doubt I'll be the only one.
