A united front to solve their mother's death Four Brothers: One Bond!

Four step-brothers come together to find out how and why the woman who raised them was killed in this hard-edged urban drama from director John Singleton.

Short-tempered Bobby, struggling musician Jack, streetwise Angel and hard-working Jeremiah are four guys who do not appear to have much in common, in terms of either race or temperament.
However, these men have one very important bond � all four were adopted and raised by the same woman, and they all love her as a mother, and respect one another as brothers.

Four step-brothers come together to find out how and why the woman who raised them was killed in this hard-edged urban drama from director John Singleton.

Short-tempered Bobby, struggling musician Jack, streetwise Angel and hard-working Jeremiah are four guys who do not appear to have much in common, in terms of either race or temperament.

However, these men have one very important bond � all four were adopted and raised by the same woman, and they all love her as a mother, and respect one another as brothers.

When their mother is killed during a robbery at a grocery store, the four brothers come together for the funeral, but when they do not get straight answers about what happened to her, they begin looking into the crime themselves.

The deeper they dig into the case, the more the brothers begin to suspect that the shooting was not an accident, and that powerful and unexpected forces were involved.

"Four Brothers" marked one of the first starring roles for Andre Benjamin, better known as Andre 3000 of the top selling hip-hop group OutKast.
