Set in the summer of 1926, Brotherhood recounts the true story of a group of youth at a camp on Balsam Lake in the Kawartha Lakes. In a terrifying test of will and strength, they have to fight for survival when an unforeseen thunderstorm capsizes their war canoe. Ten campers and their two leaders are left stranded in freezing water far from shore. The boys are propelled into manhood, all in the darkness of one catastrophic summer night.
Written and directed by Richard Bell, this drama-cum-thriller was shot near Wawa, Ontario and in studio in Toronto.
“Bell orchestrates some fine moments among the young cast – which includes The Order’s Jake Manley and Northern Rescue’s Spencer Macpherson in key roles – and Brendan Fehr and Brendan Fletcher find some compelling notes as the First World War veterans charged with minding the boys.”
