The Brother: Muscular dystrophy and dreams of being an anime hero

At night, Kais, who has muscular dystrophy, dreams that he is an anime hero fighting a ruthless intergalactic villain.

When he is awake, Kais is completely dependent on his devoted family for round-the-clock care. He has muscular dystrophy, a degenerative disease that results in the gradual loss of muscle tissue throughout the body.

His family gave up their comfortable life in Morocco to live in the suburbs of Paris, France, to ensure Kais receives the best quality medical care.

In this film, which mixes animation with live footage, Kais dreams that he is the hero of his favourite anime series alongside his brothers: Fehd the bodybuilder and Zaid the ninja, in a story of love and bravery that mirrors the selflessness of his family.
