World AIDS Awareness Week Documentary - Blood Brother is a documentary feature that tells the story of a college student who meets a group of orphaned children at an AIDS hostel during an impromptu trip to India one summer. 92 min.

Blood Brother is a documentary feature that tells the story of Rocky Braat, a disillusioned college student whose impromptu trip to India one summer dramatically changed his understanding of love and family. While traveling, Rocky met a group of orphaned children at an AIDS hostel. Unlike others who had simply passed through these children's lives, Rocky did not abandon them. Instead, he moved to India to restart his life among the dispossessed. The children became his family, and he theirs, and for years Rocky dedicated himself to their health and wellbeing.

Blood Brother is directed by Rocky's best friend, Steve Hoover. It won the 2013 Sundance Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award.
