Best friends since childhood, brothers Juan and Ernesto Quintero are inseparable, butprogressively choose divergent paths. As Juan creates a seemingly picture perfect life of a thriving construction business, marriage to the girl next door and two beautiful kids, Ernesto falls into the shadow influence of drugs in his neighborhood. As the two grow apart and Ernesto falls into deeper isolation through years of cocaine addiction, Juan’s life is thrown a curve-ball when he is diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and given three years to live. Juan must accept his increasing loss of autonomy and failing ability to care for his wife and kids. In the wake of Juan’s diagnosis, Ernesto is forced to dig deep and re-examine the value of life as he comes to the aid of his brother.The story follows the parallel journeys of two brothers who each must face their respective diseases of addiction and neurodegeneration, fear and acceptance, healing and redemption, and the struggle to keep faith amidst imminent defeat. In their race against time to find a miracle for a disease doctors say has no cure, Juan must decide what is a life worth living. Two brothers discover a renewed faith in love, brotherhood, family and community and how we all come together to support the ones we love. Sometimes when all seems hopeless, love is the only answer.
