The Story Synopsis
Blood Brothers is about an educated young African American, Rube, forced to hustle and survive on the streets. Rube has been put between a rock-and-a-hard place, trying to help someone he loves, but being dragged down by someone he looks up to.
Rube's mother Pearl is sick with pneumonia, while he is away at Grad School. Pearl has a strong religious background, good morals and a great relationship with Rube. Rube's brother Cal is a mid-level drug dealer, who's been in-and-out of jail, is somewhat psychotic and currently looking to get off the streets to have a better life, any way he can.
Rube approaches Cal about borrowing some money to get the necessary health care their mother needs. Cal loans Rube the money on one condition: that Rube goes to work for him. Cal, knowing how smart his brother is, figures that Rube will be able to find a way for him to make a quick buck and get out of the street life. Due to Pearl's strong morals and religious beliefs she wouldn't take any money from Cal, but coming from Rube she would believe that he has made an honest buck.
The story opens up two weeks after Rube has borrowed the money from his brother Cal. Cal puts pressure on Rube to quickly repay his money in hopes that Rube will come up with a plan to make Cal rich.
However, Rube's journey leads him to places he never thought possible and puts him in a position he can't avoid - brother-against-brother.
